MAKE WEARING A MASK FUN
We understand some children may be resistant or scared to wear a mask. Below are some helpful tips from Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego to encourage your child to keep their mask on in a fun and child-friendly way.
Use a marker or pen, and ask if your child would like to decorate the front of their mask before they wear it. This allows for your child to feel like they a part of what is being asked of them. It also increases their sense of control and reduces their fear and anxiety through creativity and expression.
Wear a mask with your child, too, or put one on their stuffed animal from home! Modeling is a very powerful tool for younger children to physically see what is being asked of them, and it also helps them to feel less alone and out of control.
If your child appears afraid of the mask, sometimes humor and/or familiarity is a helpful way to decrease anxiety. Phrases and objects children are familiar with can be helpful in these situations:
“This looks like a banana peel! That is so silly!”
“We get to wear a mask just like Darth Vader to keep us safe!”
“First, I need you to put your mask on, and then we can watch Paw Patrol on mom’s phone.”
“If you keep your mask on, dad will tell you a funny joke when the doctor is ready to see you.”
Education can also be a powerful tool in empowering children through knowledge. Explain how a mask is something people use to “keep the germs away from their nose and mouth.”
