At the time of writing, we have just started the lockdown due to COVID-19. This is something that is unprecedented and something we couldn’t properly prepare children and young people for. As mentioned in previous posts, it’s important to talk about feelings and experience the feelings.
It is also important to have some fun and keep things light. Everyone will deal with this in their own way. But it is so important that we do ‘deal’ and help children and young people to cope and deal with this. Doing something that is not part of your normal routine is good. It teaches children and young people that sometimes when your routine has to change (like just now) it isn’t always a bad thing.
Change isn’t a bad thing. It is just new.
