*Worried mom* How do I, if at all, explain this pandemic/quarantine to my children?
My heart is breaking for them like never before.
When my 4 year old repeatedly wonders and asks why she can’t go to school, or see her her neighborhood friends, I struggle finding the right words. I feel so powerless knowing I don’t have any of the answers that both she and I are asking.
I’ve turned to kids’ authors and done some research in hopes of finding a way to explain this to my kids that they can understand.
Julia Cook is an author who writes books for children, focusing on letting them laugh while learning to solve their own problems, use better behavior, and develop healthy relationships.
Her book “The Yucky Bug” is super adorable and very relatable to the situation going on in the world. Reading this to my kids has helped me explain so much more, and I definitely recommend it.
I know all us moms are scared for our little ones, but know that you’re not alone.
We’ll get through this.
