Dear Marsha: Associate Dean Talks Addressing Coronavirus with Children

Dear Marsha: Talking to Kids About COVID-19, hosted by SSW Associate Dean Marsha Kline Pruett, M.S., M.S.L., Ph.D., provides answers to parents looking for support in speaking to their children about the novel coronavirus. In the blog, Pruett addresses questions pertaining to what COVID-19 really is, what to say to children of different ages and ways to discuss the virus with a co-parent.

Writes Pruett, "There are a lot of mixed messages about COVID-19 that are being told to both adults and children, and it seems to be a moving target with information about the virus changing almost daily. Do not assume the worst about the other parent; this is a time for giving the benefit of the doubt."
