Creating Awareness about COVID -19 | Practices Related to Coronavirus Pandemic
At this moment of challenging times, NISE, one of the leading international schools in Coimbatore , encourages and supports children, parents and others to be positive and lead a safe life. We will definitely overcome these tough times if we follow safety rules and adhere to government directives without any compromise.
Does COVID-19 affect children?
It is possible for people of any age group to be infected with this COVID-19 virus. But so far there have been comparatively limited number cases of COVID-19 reported among children. COVID-19 is critical in mostly among elderly people with pre-existing health issues. There are measures, which we can adopt to keep ourselves and our near and dear ones safe like social distancing, isolation, wearing face masks and frequent washing of hands with soap.
Sharing information about Corona Virus
News about COVID-19 is everywhere, right from the front page of all newspapers to TV programs. Many parents are concerned about how to explain about the epidemic in a way that will be reassuring as well as remove the worries and fears that children are already engulfed with. Images of people wearing masks, curfew regulations and isolation from friends as well as family make it important to discuss the current situation faced by our society due to COVID-19. Parents should willingly and openly discuss the issues and most importantly tell their kids how important it is to follow the government order of social distancing and isolation.
Engaging kids in meaningful activities
They can help their children to use their time productively by encouraging them to read stories or books of their interest, home gardening, learning a new language, taking online educative courses and quizzes. Parent can also make use of this time for fun-filled family activities like playing board games, indoor sports and close knit conversations.
Reinforce Safety Measures
A vital step at this tasking time is to emphasize the safety precautions that you are taking. Thorough washing of hands is the primary means of staying healthy and safe. So remind children that they are taking care of themselves by washing their hands with soap as well as water for 20 seconds before they eat, after blowing their nose, coughing, sneezing or using the bathroom.
How we can encourage positivity among children?
Confidence can be instilled among our children by clarifying them that COVID-19 is going to be a temporary epidemic if we strictly follow the preventive measures. We should make them realise that everyone around them including the government and their immediate family are leaving no stone unturned to safeguard them from the virus. Parents should make their children understand that the young ones are their top most priority and they will go to any extent to protect them from COVID-19 or any other health hazards.
