PARENTS – please talk to your kids about social distancing and staying at home. We need everyone to take these guidelines seriously. Does this all stink? 🙁 YES! But it is *critically* important.
TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT THESE THINGS
👉Social distancing and staying home is proven to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The more we stay home and social distance, the faster this will blow over.
👉Colorado is under a statewide stay-at-home order. Don’t try to bend the rules or find loopholes. Children and teens should not be gathering with their friends, inside or outside, or anywhere.
👉Healthy people play a critical role in protecting the most vulnerable people in our community. Even if you/your child/your teen is healthy, we all need to champion social distancing and realize it’s about the greater good of our community. #stopthespread #stayhomesavelives
THINGS KIDS CAN DO
💻Encourage your child to connect in online meetings with friends and family (video meeting lunch every day…).
🌞Go outside! It is physically and mentally healthy to be outdoors. (When you are outside, maintain at least 6 feet of distance and don’t gather with people outside the members of your immediate household.)
💫🔭Encourage your kids to try relaxing activities or interests at home that they might not normally have time for.
🐠Many aquariums, museums, and organizations offer free online resources for everyone. Need ideas? Click here
Thank you parents for having these difficult but critical conversations with your kids. We will get through this together!
