Well-known parenting educator and author Maggie Dent presents these resources:

‘Short & Curly’ kids ethics podcast
- Bonus episode all about COVID-19. Hosts Carl Smith and Matt Beard talk about the importance of cooperation during the pandemic, how social isolation is doing something for the greater good and looking at fun things you can do if you are home from school.
- Mindfully, The ABC’s mindfulness podcast is re-packaging some of the meditations from previous series into a special series of 8 podcasts they’re calling Corona Calm. The meditations cover dealing with anxiety, finding calm and relaxation, coping with adversity, and there’s one specifically for children.
