We are at war. In a war, no one sets out to be a hero, they just do what they must and in the chaos of battle they become heroes. They don’t describe themselves as courageous. “I’m just doing my job.”

In the war on COVID-19 the list of heroes is growing:

Nurses.
Doctors.
Ambulance workers.
Paramedics.
Firefighters
Grocery store clerks
Seniors caregivers.
Police officers.
Transit drivers.
Pharmacists.
Lab techs.
Farmers.
Undertakers.
Retired health care workers.
Soldiers
Anyone who aids those who test positive.
Add children to the list of heroes.

Our children are heroes, too.

Missing their grandparents, extended family, and school.

Lack of normal routines.

Loss of structure for their day.

Parents who are stressed, worried, scared and just different.

Overhearing talk and news without an understanding of what they hear.

Give your little hero more cuddles, more one-on-one playtime, and an extra dose of patience and forgiveness.

With the help of a fantasy creature, Ario, “My Hero is You, How kids can fight COVID-19!” explains how children can protect themselves, their families and friends from coronavirus and how to manage difficult emotions when confronted with a new and rapidly changing reality.
