Dear colleagues,

COVID-19 Parenting tips went live on this WHO site yesterday:

['To help parents interact constructively with their children during this time of confinement, these six one-page tips for parents cover planning one-on-one time, staying positive, creating a daily routine, avoiding bad behaviour, managing stress, and talking about COVID-19. Use them to your and your kids’ advantage, and have fun in doing so.']

Please share with your networks.

Early Childhood Development Action Network (ECDAN) will host a Webinar tomorrow from 8.30 - 10 am EST. Alex Butchart and Neerja Chowdary will be on the panel, and Wilson Were and Pura Solon will be available to answer clinical questions. If you are interested to participate, kindly subscribe through the ECDAN website or let Laure or I know and we forward the invitation.

Wishing all a good day,
