HSHS, Prevea say talk to kids about wearing a mask: One of the most effective ways to help your child become more comfortable with wearing a mask is by being a role model. When you also wear a mask, and do so with a positive attitude, your child is likely to follow your lead, according to HSHS hospitals and Prevea Health.

Children under age 2 should not wear a mask due to suffocation and choking hazards. In addition, parents of children with cognitive or respiratory impairments should use caution with masks for their children.

Other tips for getting kids to wear face masks include: Looking in the mirror with your child while you each wear a mask and talk about it; finding a face covering your child can put on and take off themselves; putting a mask on a favorite stuffed animal; decorating the child’s masks so they’re more personalized and fun; and practicing wearing the mask at home to help your child get used to it.
