Cabin Fever?

Being home around the clock and for weeks at a time can bring on symptoms of anxiety and depression, not just for adults but also children. Make this time at home with children and family as enjoyable as possible. Below are a few creative activities to help engage toddler and elementary age children. Remember, this is all new to children as well and they too have concerns about what is happening around the world. Questions about why school is closed or why outside activities may be limited are normal. Be sure to explain these in way that is suitable for the child's age and level or understanding. Try not to create panic and worry but instead reassure children that their safety and healthy is always a top priority. Here are a few ways to help have those conversations.
