As South Africa entered a national ‘lock down’ and families were confined to their homes, a new and unknown set of challenges rose on the horizon. One of the many challenges involves how to help children make sense of current circumstances and manage the confusion, disappointment, excitement(!) and very understandable fears and anxieties about Coronavirus and ‘lock down’.
Luckily, World Health Organisation (WHO) has produced a series of posters to aid parents and ensure a meaningful time together, considering:
- One-of-One Time
- Keeping it Positive
- Structure Up
- Bad Behaviour
- Keep Calm and Manage Stress
- Talking about COVID-19
These posters are available here: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) advice for the public: Healthy Parenting.
