For those caring for, or working with, young children and are unsure how to explain the current situation to them without raising anxiety levels, the Children's Commissioner has created a useful guide.

Many children are finding the change of routine, combined with the worrying news about the effects of Coronavirus, a really difficult time; and adults can struggle to explain the situation clearly, without burdening them even further.

This guide gives suggestions about how to keep the conversation about Coronavirus open with children, and how to answer the difficult questions. It also provides resources that the children can complete themselves, as well as useful websites and contacts.

You can download the guide here. YSS has also put a list of useful contacts, websites and info, here.
