Do you know how your child should wear their mask, if it fits well at school? If the mask doesn't fit well, these characteristics won't be met. A good mask fit
If your child's mask doesn't fit well, tie loops behind the ears to make it fit more snuggly. Ensure the straps are made of a soft comfy material that won't hurt the back of the ears. You can also make sure your child has several favorite masks fo that he can switch when needed. Just like you do with hand washing or not picking your nose, we can normalize mask wearing as a clean, good habit with our own role modeling. Send consistent messages to your child about their ability to persevere wearing a mask, by showing your own perseverance wearing the mask.
