An Australian father shared a post on Facebook to warn others not to spend too much time discussing the coronavirus issue around young children. He also shared a picture of the note that he found in his 8-year-old daughter's room to show how much she had been affected.
A father got concerned as he came across a note written by his daughter.
He shared it with people on the internet to warn others not to spend too much time discussing the coronavirus issue around young children. Greg Hughes from Australia told others that he had been talking about the global issue too much at home but never knew that his daughter, Olivia was being affected by the whole pandemic situation.
The father of two discovered a sheet in his eight-year-old daughter's room. The note included measures against the Coronavirus, listing all the ways she was getting ready to face the situation.
"This is the reason why I need to stop talking quite so much about pandemics and the coronavirus part two - the eight-year-old edition," Greg wrote in his Facebook post.
The little girl has gotten all the precautionary measures in her mind as her sheet asks to "stock up", "try not to touch face", "don't go in other people's rooms too much" and "try and be a meter away from everyone". The intelligent girl did not just include measures but also added a list of her hobbies that she could keep doing to occupy herself in this urgent time.
"We have had some really adult conversations about the current situation and every time she encounters something she doesn't understand or that makes her feel uncomfortable we sit down and talk through it together," the dad added.
People came to appreciate the sensible father for preparing his child well for dealing with the virus.
"An amazing testament to how well you've done to prepare her without causing panic – can you do a FB live session or Youtube video and explain this to the 'adults' who aren’t handling this with as much grace and common sense as what your daughter is displaying," a person wrote under the post.
"Nice and thought out, better prepped than some adults," another added.
