IN THE NEWS: Should Parents Be Honest About Their COVID Fears?

COVID Fear: You’re a parent and you’re scared.

Is it okay to exhibit fear in the face of this pandemic?
That’s the question that parents are grappling with as we continue living through the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s an unprecedented time – one than none of us have ever lived through before – and it shows no sign of waning anytime soon.Woman in mask

On my latest segment on CJAD 800 Montreal, I speak with Natasha Hall about parents’ concerns and whether they should be up front with their children about their fears.

Some items we discuss include:
  • Is it healthy to hide how we’re feeling?
  • Should we pretend things are okay when they’re not?
  • How will our honesty about the current situation affect our kids?
  • Is there an age where it’s appropriate to level with children?
  • How does our collective mental health – for both kids and adults – factor into this question?

Listen to the full segment here to find out the answers to these and other questions.
