TALKING TO YOUR CHILD DURING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
Your kids, like mine, will have many questions about Coronavirus and what it means for them – and for the people they love.
I know it can be daunting for parents and carers to answer those questions. That’s why, in close consultation with our child psychologist team, we’ve developed a resource to help guide you through these conversations.
Everyone’s child is different, and some will want to talk more than others. What’s most important is that you’re there for them when they’re ready to talk.
Without doubt, we face an enormous challenge.
But I want you to know that as parents, caregivers and Victorians, we are in this together.
The Hon James Merlino, MP- Deputy Premier – Minister for Education

Dear Parents/ Carers,
