  • Description:
    Ask your children: What have you heard about Ebola? -- Gently correct inaccurate information. -- Answer their questions about Ebola in ways that will reassure, not scare them. -- Allow your children to express their feelings and help them cope.

    With so much about Ebola in the news, chances are your children have heard about it. You can help your children understand what is happening here in the United States and in West Africa by talking with them directly. Not talking about Ebola can make it seem even scarier to a child. You can tailor these ideas for your child’s age, development, and concerns.
