Keep Talking

Health warnings are issued regularly these days. Children, especially younger ones, may have concerns about these warnings but may not necessarily express their fear or anxiety. Limit exposure to media that may be discussing the H1N1 flu in ways that are not appropriate for young children. Encourage discussion between family members to answer the questions children may have, and assure them that the special grown-ups in their lives are there to keep them safe.
