Coping with COVID-19..... A GUIDE FOR PARENTS AND CARERS

18th Dec 2020

WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

This booklet is intended to offer helpful suggestions and resources for families to support parents, children and adolescents deal with stress and strengthen meaningful connections together.


Overnight our world has been turned upside down, or at least that’s what it may feel like. As a result of this new virus we are living our lives
in very different ways: our families’ routines have been disrupted and for some we have been separated from the people we love and care about.


This may have caused feelings of uncertainty.
When we are unsure of our future this can trigger stress reactions and feelings of anxiety. Our children may feel this too, they are just the
same as us. We as parents and carers want the very best for our children but currently we are facing challenges which may make us feel anxious about the future for our families.

At the back of this booklet you will find some organisations that are providing resources to support us all in these difficult times.
