Teen Coronavirus Teaching Tools: COVID-19 Resources for Parents & Teenagers From St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
As the Memorial Day holiday approaches and the official start of summer break, the family and child life specialists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have developed a new resource geared specifically for teenagers to better understand the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how to stay healthy this summer. The new teen resource provides accurate, scientific and illustrative explanations in age-appropriate language about the virus, how it spreads, symptoms, protective measures for both physical and mental health/self-care.
The new teen resource joins a suite of age-appropriate tools for parents and children of all ages from teens, preteens and younger children available in multiple languages (currently in English, Spanish, French and Arabic). The suite of tools was designed by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s child and family experts for utilization by parents and caregivers to help children better understand the current COVID-19 pandemic.
St. Jude Together has an entire set of resources for parents, including information developed by the St. Jude experts on how to talk to your children about coronavirus and COVID-19 to tips and frequently asked questions children may ask about the virus.
For general information on the coronavirus and kids, St. Jude has developed a general resource page about the pandemic for parents, children and families to consult, which includes how to talk to children, music therapy and educational resources.
For teenage children, St. Jude has developed illustrative explainers – The Story on the Coronavirus about the virus, how it spreads, its symptoms, how to protect ourselves and what a pandemic is.
For younger children, St. Jude has developed a suite to tools intended to help educate children about the pandemic itself and the impact it is having on our daily lives. The Learn About the Coronavirus coloring book developed for children ages 5-9 (currently being translated into nine additional languages), as well as the Learn About the Coronavirus activity book geared more toward “tweens” ages 10-13 more or less.
