Children, Parenting & COVID
Children who have experienced serious illness or losses in the past are particularly vulnerable to prolonged or intense reactions to graphic news reports or images of illness or death.
These children may need extra support and attention. Children who are excessively preoccupied with concerns about COVID-19 should be evaluated by a trained and qualified mental health professional.
Other signs that a child may need additional help include: ongoing sleep disturbances, intrusive thoughts or worries, recurring fears about illness or death, reluctance to leave parents or go to school.
If such behaviours persist, ask your child’s doctor to help arrange an appropriate referral. (American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)
