Children often react to stressful events differently than adults. How the child in your life reacts to COVID-19 will vary by age, their previous experiences and how they typically cope with stress. The graphic below shares signs of stress that you can watch for in preschool and elementary aged children and how to help them.

You can find resources and learn more about how to support children of all ages by visiting CDC’s Helping Children Cope website or the national Child Traumatic Stress Network’s (NCTSN) Parent/Caregiver Guide to Helping Families Cope.
