Yvette Bairan, director of Astor Services for Children and Families, spoke about the pandemic and its effect on our children and how we can help them. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to many changes in our daily lives. If your child feels scared or anxious, talk to him, ask questions, listen, and reassure him that he is safe and loved. You can also walk, watch movies, create art, and follow routines to help reduce stress.
