How do we explain frightening things we can't see to our children? How do we provide them some normalcy in times of uncertainty? What do What do you do as a parent when you can't
answer your child's questions because you don't have all the answers?
It's in our nature to search for answers, it's also in our nature to stress over things we can't find answers to, The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly challenged us in a way that most have never experienced, I'm here to tell you that's perfectly normal. Challenges build resilience, test our resolve, and allow for other opportunities to take shape, some of which you probably never would've imagined, I guess what I'm trying to say is...you're doing great!
"How to Defeat the Icky, Filthy, Creepy, Slimy CORONA MONSTER" came to me as I was deciding how to explain the situation to my daughter, Like you, I had more questions than answers, but a four-year-old doesn't have time for our questions... they have plenty of their own! So naturally, I decided to make this all part of her 'Superhero" training! Yes, you read that correctly. Believe it or not, children are SUPERHEROES in training. They are just waiting to discover their natural superpower to share with the world. Remember when I said challenges can also present opportunities? That's exactly how I want Penelope to see this new world we are experiencing! She will be called upon to do her part in defeating that "icky. filthy, creepy, slimy CORONA MONSTER" so she can earn her cape!
Is your child ready for their mission?
Thank you and stay safe out there!
