When Max was three years old, he worried when he overheard grown-ups talking about the pandemic. Sharing his feelings with his mom and dad was a big help. Lucy, 5, sought comfort in her toys, creating a make-believe classroom. Arielle, mom to two toddlers, discovered the benefits of self-care. Drawing on these stories, Dr. Archana Basu, a clinical psychologist at Mass General Hospital, and Dr. Daniel Dickstein, a child psychiatrist and pediatrician at McLean Hospital, offer valuable guidance.
