Children and Families Coping with Covid-19

Justina Acevedo-Cross ·
Children and families may be facing more adversity due to the economic and home impact of the Covid-19 outbreak. The Covid-19 situation is fluid and changing daily and I know it effects early childhood programs in a big way. The National Child Traumatic Stress Network put out a good guide on helping families cope with Coronavirus given so many changes to daily life; it is a great resource. Access it here: Parent/Caregiver Guide to Helping Families Cope With the Coronavirus Disease 2019. ...

"Drive thru Preschool" (General)

Daniel Goya ·
During this time of social distancing and the legitimate scare of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to develop a sense of "normalcy" for our little ones (keiki). We can do this by keeping them on a schedule, making sure that we are listening to their concerns and meet their unmet needs. Due to COVID-19 preschools in Hawai'i have shut its doors to instruction, however this preschool has continued to operate by meeting the needs of the homeless and at-risk homeless families they serve.

Aloha Shannon, I work with family child care providers who provider care to children ages 0-5. Here is a question from one of our providers: "I have a new student who is 4 years. He has moved from CA with only dad. He's been showing anger. He kicked me, hit me, screams at me when I try to redirect him. I have spoken to his dad. Dad is going to get him some counseling. I know the counseling is going to take some tine to get and to help. What can I do NOW? The smaller keiki are clinging to me...

Aloha Jamie, Mahalo for asking a good question. You are right that counseling is going to take some time. Iʻm glad to hear the father is going to get counseling for this keiki. It sounds like the keiki has experienced a lot of changes recently. Moving in and of itself can be challenging for anyone, especially young keiki. Iʻd suggest trying to provide as much structure, routine and consistency as possible and suggesting that the father and child care providers do the same. Predictability and...
