COVID Conversations

$19.95

An easy to follow approach to help teachers, parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles to talk about COVID-19 with children.

Our world has changed abruptly, with little warning, and we are now different. It is difficult enough for us all to understand and live in this new way, and even more difficult for our children.

This is something that I wanted to write, firstly for myself. Like many people, I am missing my family because I live alone. I miss seeing my friends, but it is the family that I miss most – missing my sons, daughters-in-law, especially my granddaughter, Hannah, almost 2 years old.

Having seen her quite regularly for many months, watching her growing and learning each day, I know I cannot see her – if I do, I can’t pick her up, cuddle or play with her or go to playgrounds. Like many others around the world.

She does not understand any of this.

All she knows is that Nanna doesn’t come any more. Sure, we Facetime and I can see her, but she doesn’t understand that either.

Description

Helping teachers, parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles to talk about COVID-19 with children

All she knows is that Nanna doesn’t come any more. Sure, we Facetime and I can see her, but she doesn’t understand that either.

This helps me because I can write how I might talk with her if she were a little older, and it gives me something to do that sort of “involves” Hannah. One day, I hope she will read this and understand a little more about what happened, how much I love her – it’s her history as well as mine.

I also hope that my conversational episodes might start conversations in families. This new way of life is here to stay for a while. It is difficult and gets more difficult as time goes by, for us all. Children understand early on, and then forget or just want it to end. Parents will be there and can support their children. Teachers may choose to share this with their own children or with their students or parents – their choice.

These episodes talk about this invisible threat we all face. The texts answer questions, suggesting ways to talk and things to do that may be helpful. If this helps one child, in one family, then I will be happier for writing these conversations.                 

Take care, stay safe and well
