Having a difficult time talking with your children about COVID-19? It’s OK. We understand. For something that many adults are still trying to process, this experience can be even more complicated for children. The team at Clark Podiatry Center wants to support you during this time. Here are a few suggestions for starting your conversation with our youngest community members. The CDC offers a helpful resource.

Focus on facts — not fear

The CDC provides regular updates, including new symptoms and recommendations on how to prevent the spread of germs. Use reliable and trusted sources to talk about the virus with your children. Avoid social media accounts that haven’t been verified or recommended by your local officials.

Provide practical ways to help

Everyone is doing their part to protect their neighbors from COVID-19. It includes first responders, delivery and service members, teachers, and other community members. Encourage your children to record a “thank you” video for their teacher. Help your children pick a favorite song that helps them wash their hands for at least 20 seconds. Teach your child how to cover their mouth when sneezing or coughing.

Share how adults will keep them safe

Reassuring children that they are safe is important. Talk with your children about the brave men and women who are working tirelessly to protect people from the virus and find a cure. Sharing with your children how adults are here to help and provide safe ways to move and play is a great step in the right direction. Find age-appropriate videos or research online to help with your conversation.

As a reminder, we ask that appointments only be made for emergencies such as infections or injuries and high-risk patients. A person with diabetes or severe circulatory issues is considered in this group. If you have any questions or urgent concerns, call us at (732) 382-3470 or schedule an appointment online with Dr. Brandon A. Macy, a board-certified podiatrist. For concerns about your children, The New Jersey Children’s Foot Health Institute is also part of Clark Podiatry Center.
