Coronavirus and Wellbeing - Looking Forward

The change that Covid-19 has caused to our lives has been difficult and has provided countless challenges. For many children, the uncertainty and disruption to everyday life has caused worry and anxiety. These tasks are designed to help children process the current situation, begin to make sense of it and plan for returning to a different normal. 



  • Reading or being read to offers hope and positivity. The Book of Hopes aims to comfort and encourage children during these unusual times. 


  • Talk to your child about what they are looking forward to most when things begin to return to normal. Who are they looking forward to seeing at school? What places are they excited about visiting with the family? What will they miss about being at home?  


  • Write the headings ‘Things I’ve enjoyed being at home’ and ‘What I am looking forward to most’ on paper. Ask your child to draw and/or list all of the positive experiences they have had over the last few weeks and those to come.  


If your child is struggling to adapt to the ‘new normal’, Mind Ed for Families offers safe and reliable advice on supporting children’s mental health and wellbeing.
