Como enseñar a nuestros hijos a entender sobre el coronavirus y ayudarlos a lidiar con sus emociones.

Hoy quiero compartir con ustedes esta información que me ayudo a explicar a mi hija que es el Coronavirus y como apoyarla en su entendimiento sobre esta nueva pandemia.

Este libro está dedicado para niños de entre 2 y 7 años, con el objetivo de explicar que es el nuevo virus que esta afectando al mundo entero, como podemos prevenirlo y lo mas importante como se sienten emocionalmente ante esta enfermedad y como tranquilizarlos ante las noticias del mundo exterior.

La autora de este libro utiliza un formato divertido para explicar que es el coronavirus, donde los niños pueden dibujar, colorear y expresar que es lo que sienten. Como madre se que es muy difícil explicar a nuestros hijos que es lo que está pasando en el mundo, talvez no encontremos las palabras adecuadas o simplemente esto nos causa estrés de tan solo pensar cómo vamos a explicar que es este virus.

Aquí les dejo el link para que puedan descargarse el libro llamado COVIBOOK y además viene en diferentes idiomas.

It's time to get creative! Can you draw, paint or sew? Join us and make a PACT quilt to represent our community and share messages from our time apart during isolation.
