Teaching Children to Cope With COVID-19

Author: Aisyah Llewellyn

In the age of COVID-19, family dynamics have understandably shifted. As a result, we’ve seen more parents openly talk on social media about their struggles with balancing work, child care and self-care during this time. But children in particular may respond to this stress differently.

On this week’s episode of Southeast Asia Dispatches, our Editor-in-Chief Aisyah Llewellyn spoke with Louis, a science teacher based in Medan, Indonesia about how parents can help children cope with the changes brought by this pandemic.

This interview was recorded last month and some of the particulars mentioned in this recording might be dated.
