This Heartwarming Story Can Help You Explain What Social Distancing Is To Your ChildIt’s available for free on YouTube.by Kate Borbon .
Many kids may be having a hard time understanding why they can’t go outside, visit their Lolo and Lola, play with their friends, and go to school. Many parents may also be struggling to explain social distancing in a way their kids will be able to grasp.
When it comes to discussing difficult topics, children’s storybooks are an indispensable tool. To explain social distancing to your child, here’s a cute new children’s story you can use: Time to Come In, Bear by Kim St. Lawrence.
Time to Come In, Bear follows a bunny talking to his friend, a bear, about why it’s important to stay inside. He tells Bear that “the world caught a cold” and the only way not to catch those germs is to stay at home. The bunny reassures Bear that this won’t last forever and that despite everything going on, “the world is still funny.”ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
The story then touches on how it’s currently unsafe to visit Grandma and Grandpa. “A phone call’s a great call to keep them both safe,” the bunny explains. He also talks about how Bear can’t have playdates with his friends, for now, saying, “You miss them, I know. The next time we see them, we’ll make sure it shows.”CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
Finally, the bunny tells Bear about the “heroes” who are still fighting outside “to clean up the germs and make the world alright” while they stay at home.
This heartwarming story is featured in a YouTube video that only lasts less than two minutes, which means reading it to your child won’t take up too much time. It might not answer all of her questions about social distancing and the COVID-19 pandemic, but it can certainly be a good stepping stone to having that conversation.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
