Not sure what to say to your little ones about Ebola? The first thing to do is to stay calm. Children tend to take their cues from the adults in their lives. After you take a few deep breaths, then it’s important to make sure you say the right thing.   That’s going to vary from child to child.


In addition to making sure what you say is age appropriate, it also needs to be child appropriate. Some children do better with a little more information. Others simple need reassurance that the adults are taking care of everything.


I share a few specific tips in this interview I did for the Dallas Morning News. Click here to read more.


Be well.
