Talking to Your Child About COVID-19

The Government of Alberta has developed a COVID-19 Fact Sheet for Children and Students. The fact sheet also recommends CBC Kids News as a resource for students to learn more: CBC Kids News.

The Bonnyville Child and Adolescent Mental Health Collaborative also has Coping During COVID-19 resources posted on its website.

In addition there are a number of great resources that have been developed by organizations in North America to provide parents with tools to discuss COVID-19 with children. There are resources created for a variety of age levels.
