Should our kids be wearing masks? Should they be striking for climate change? Should they be dreading next Summer’s fire season?
These school holidays, if you’re travelling with the kids, you might need to tackle the big issues that swirl all around us right now.
Where’s the line between informed and panicked? What responsibility do the old owe the young when it comes to the planet? How do you answer a corona-panicked kid asking: ‘Am I going to die?’
On this special bonus episode Holly and Andrew chat to Dr. Norman Swan, Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg and Varsha Yajman on how to talk to your kids about Coronavirus, bushfires and the ongoing climate change.
