One of the most important things to remember is that you don’t project your own anxiety on your children. When your kid senses that, he or she will become all the more anxious. So, no matter how worried you are, try and remain calm, reassure yourself and ease your kid’s worries.
Given the crisis we are facing right now, any parent of a child exhibiting symptoms is bound to be scared and surrounded by a lot of news as well. Be prepared, gather your facts and take time to ground yourself, before the child gets tested.
