New Coronavirus Support for Families


As Covid-19 moves rapidly from country to country, Family5 has turned its attention to finding ways to help and support its global parenting community.

At a time when parents all over Australia have questions and concerns about how best to face the current crisis and how to help their children understand and adjust, Family5 has received hundreds of messages from parents asking questions such as how to talk to kids about Covid-19, what to do if/when schools close, helping kids who are anxious and more.

How do I talk to my kids about: What should I do if schools close? How can I help my anxious child through this worrying time? How do I support my child if someone close to her becomes ill?
