Kars4Kids released an article featuring Dr. Roseann titled, “Coronavirus Isolation: How to Help Children Feel a Little Less Lonely”. In this article, Dr. Roseann talks about how parents can help children learn how to process their feelings and feel validated. Here's a preview of what she had to say:

“‘Developmentally, children can think only from their own perspectives and may get lost in their emotions,' says Capanna-Hodge who agrees with Lear that validating a child's feelings is important. ‘When children learn to identify what they are feeling, parents can then help them process those feelings so they feel validated. That validation leads children to feel in control and capable of managing their emotions. It is also important for children to know that loneliness is a normal feeling right now during quarantine and they can do things to feel less lonely.'”
