Hey There and Welcome!
You know how sometimes when your mom or your teacher explains something, and it makes absolutely no sense? But then, your older brother or your friend on the bus explains it, and suddenly, everything is clear! That can happen anywhere. In school, at Scouts, at camp - adults are totally awesome but sometimes they’re just not able to explain stuff in a clear and understandable way. Poor adults. Go pat one on the head.
You probably have lots of examples, but remember how frustrated you felt when your dad tried to teach you how to tie your shoes? You had no progress. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Your laces just lay there, mocking you. But then, your step-brother taught you in like 10 minutes.
It’s not that other kids are always smarter than grownups. But sometimes, it helps to have a kid’s perspective when you’re explaining stuff. Like how those shoelaces actually do look like bunny ears. And how it’s easier to look up people’s noses when you’re shorter than they are. Sometimes, other kids can just make things clearer, simpler, and easier to understand than a grownup can. That’s just the way it works.
And, just like how your friends could teach you how to dive off the dock and jump rope, they can also answer some questions kids might have about Coronavirus and the Pandemic.
