Today I received a newsletter from Magination Press. This one is a publishing house specialized on children. There was a free ebook we could download and that I would want to share with all of you.The title is: A Kid's Guide
That these ones are complicated moments is vivible everywhere. My mother after two months of confinement today and yesterday enjoyed some time in a city close to us, discovering the same old world but pretty...altered. Shopping is more lazy! people are wearing masks and gloves like many super-heroes fighting against a shadow, a little enemy that we don't see but that we surely don't want to enter in contact with.
If adults are strained, if we suffer of lack of sleeping, if we are worried, if we check our newsmagazines with constant updates and sometimes certainties that we developed for a reason or another, children are also living a stressing existential moment. Life also in their case, turned upside down exactly like our ones.
Why can't they play anymore with their best mates? Why is there no school, so hated but, being a dream, so loved?
What is this coronavirus, that thing that changed their life and the ones of their parents, sometimes affecting heavily also the daily-routines of the parents?
With simplicicy, with kidness and with all the possible diplomacy, without hurting too much their psychological system (it depends by their age) you can find here the history of Covid-19 and the proper actions that need to be taken for fighting against it: from washing hands often repeating the alfabet 'til the end, passing through wearing masks as if we would be all super heroes busy to save the world and our existences.
It's also important to specify to children, that anyway (they have simplicity of adaptantion to new situations if compared to adult ones,) this sort of game against an evil, invisible creature soon or late will end and everyone will return to be free, hugging, kissing, shaking hands and enjoying the company of all our friends and relatives!
Just, we are at the beginning of this war.
