A key part of learning to communicate for a child is watching the faces, mouths, and expressions of the people closest to them. The concern about solid masks covering the face is understandable. However, there are no known studies that use of a face mask negatively impacts a child's speech and language development.

Whether you're the parent of a teen or a grade-school age child, you likely have questions about the vaccine. And top-of-mind for many parents is how we know that it is safe for kids. Here are answers to some common questions about the science behind the COVID-19 vaccine:https://www.healthychildren.org/English/health-issues/conditions/COVID-19/Pages/The-Science-Behind-the-COVID-19-Vaccine-Parent-FAQs.aspx

Some people have concerns about vaccine safety. The fact is vaccines save millions of lives and protect everyone against the spread of disease. Getting vaccinated is much better than getting the disease. In fact, some of the worst diseases that affect children have been greatly reduced or eliminated completely thanks to vaccines. Today, vaccines protect children and teens from 16 of these diseases. Here's what pediatricians want you to know: https://www.healthychildren.org/English/safety-prevention/immunizations/Pages/Vaccine-Safety-The-Facts.aspx

Vaccines are our best hope to end the COVID-19 pandemic. Three vaccines currently are available for adults, and one also can be given to children age 12 and older. Vaccines for children age 5 and up may be authorized soon, and clinical trials are now underway in children as young as six months old.

Though the COVID-19 vaccines are effective, AAP is recommending to stay vigilant. The vaccine is not available yet for children under 12, AAP recommends the continued use of a well-fitting face mask for children and teens who are age 2 years and older and not yet fully vaccinated. Remain cautious when they are playing with friends, accompanying their parents to the grocery store, attending school or camp, and in any other situation in which they are around groups of people, some of whom may not be fully vaccinated.

Knowing how to build resiliency is especially important during this COVID Pandemic. Resiliency is the ability to become strong, healthy or successful again after something bad happens. It can turn victims into survivors and enable survivors to become successful.
