Covid-19 For Kids (by Peter and Olivia Attia MD)

Well, this is a first for me. I am actually posting a link to a podcast created by another podcaster, medical expert, Dr. Peter Attia . He created a podcast to answer the questions that your children (and maybe you) have been wondering about regarding Covid-19 like; what is a virus, where did it come from, how does it multiply, how big is a corona virus, who is it making sick, how do this virus move around, why are children not going to school or sports, and of course-what can we do to protect ourselves?  I think the podcast is well done and both you and your children will benefit from a listen.  If you have older children, I would say eight years old or above, I think listening to this with them will be an educational and positive experience.  It will also give you a chance to address any and all of your children’s fears and questions about Covid-19. So, sit back, hit the link button in the show notes, and listen to Peter Attia M.D. from his excellent podcast, The Drive

Stretches of unscheduled time to spend with your children is truly a gift. Why not make the most of this time by teaching them important skills and lessons about life?  Your influence in your children’s lives has just been heightened and believe it or not, when you speak, they listen. Don’t miss this opportunity.  Take advantage to teach and lead.
