Meanwhile, kids are at home navigating lots of news, as well as plenty of hoaxes, about the global pandemic that has radically altered their days. What do they need to know to understand current events without being overwhelmed? “We always recommend that kids get their information about the news from important adults, not directly from the news,” said Jamie Howard, a senior clinical psychologist in the Anxiety Disorders Center at the Child Mind Institute and the director of the Center’s Trauma and Resilience Service.
