Home School | Combating Anxiety During Global Pandemic
Updated: Feb 5, 2021
Three weeks ago, the government made the decision to close UK schools in a bid to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
It is not unusual for children and young people to feel worried or anxious during this time. They may worry about catching the virus themselves or fear their loved ones becoming ill. Our normal way of life has been turned on its head and we are living with a lot of uncertainty about the coming weeks.
During this time, try to support your child’s mental health by doing the following:
1. Talk to them about what’s going on in an age appropriate manner. Give them time to talk about their feelings and ask any questions they may have.
2. If your child is feeling worried, encourage them to think about the things they can do to make them feel safer and less worried.
3. Reassure them that this will pass, you’re there for them, and you will get through this together.
4. Keep busy by spending time doing fun activities together.
5. Keep as many regular routines as possible.
