COVID-19 Resources for Parents

Many families are struggling to understand COVID-19 and its effect on their lives. Our expert teams created resources to help kids and parents better understand and cope.

Pandemic Parenting on Facebook Live
Tune in to Facebook each Wednesday as award-winning journalist Barbara Harrison interviews a Children’s National expert on all things COVID-19.

Coronavirus Webinars for Families
Children's National Hospital is hosting webinars to help our families through COVID-19, including a series for high school students about the effects of the pandemic, family town halls and interviews with Children’s National experts about pandemic parenting. Explore webinars for your family.

A Kids' Guide to Coronavirus
Your kids probably have a ton of questions about COVID-19 (coronavirus) that you might not know the answers to. That's why our experts created A Kids' Guide to Coronavirus: Staying Healthy and Safe. We also asked clinical psychologists Laura Gray, PhD, and Shayna Coburn, PhD, to provide some answers to COVID-19 FAQs for kids.

Information Hotline
We launched a special hotline for families with general questions about coronavirus. Call 202-476-5169 to speak with staff from Children's National between 8 am and 5 pm, Monday through Friday. If you have questions about your child's personal healthcare needs, please contact your child's care team.
