Kids Resources – COVID-19

If you need some help chasing down some great resources to use while your children are at home with you in these extra-ordinary times, we are here to help.

In response to what has been happening different organisations and people around the world are providing resources for you and your family.

While the library is closed we will be scouring the internet and beyond for things you can keep doing at home.

As always we have some great free resources that you can access with your library card. (Not a member? Sign up now for free and get instant access).

With recent news and media coverage about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), following on from a difficult bushfire season, it is normal for children and adults to feel overwhelmed and stressed during this time.

This curated selection of resources will assist parents and carers to best to support their children and reduce worry and distress. It contains a video, factsheets and tips about what you can expect and how you can help children cope.

The Fathering Project

Along with a range of resources to help Dads and families, The Fathering Project is also encouraging Dads to be involved in the #2Calls2Dads Challenge. Check out the Fathering Channel for more content and tips.

The #2Calls2Dads challenge invites blokes to call two other dads each week and ask how they are going during the COVID-19 crisis.

This is a challenging time for many families. A friendly check-in from a mate can make a big difference.
