Helping Young Children Cope With Omicron Disruption

Helping Young Children Cope With Omicron Disruption

31 Jan., 2022

For little kids starting or continuing early learning in 2022, there has been plenty of change to get used to.

Sudden alterations to care arrangements, masks and COVID closures can create disruption.

Children may be worried about missing their friends or being upset at changes to routine. They may also pick up on the mood of adults around them. And like adults, kids may experience a range of emotions during periods of change – which is normal.

Being able to cope with change and uncertainty is a key life skill. But change can be a bit scary, even for adults, so little kids need time and practice. With the right support, you can help your kids develop ways to tackle change more confidently.

Helping children and young people to express and cope with their emotions and build resilience will help them in the years to come. There are practical, easy-to-use tools you can learn by doing a Triple P Positive Parenting Program. These help you support children’s emotional wellbeing, even in times of stress.

And you can choose what suits your family and how to apply it.
