Explaining Current Events to Younger Children
These are indeed difficult yet historic times. While we struggle to understand and cope with all that is going on, our children are also feeling the stress of change. Images and sounds from the news and our communities can be confusing or upsetting, especially to younger children who don't yet have the communication skills to express their feelings.
CNN in partnership with Sesame Street put together townhall videos to help parents talk to their children about COVID-19, Racism and the Black Lives Matter Movement. We hope these resources help you have these difficult but necessary conversations with your child.
