LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Along with getting child care help, it's also important to provide your child with the tools they need to cope during the pandemic.

Dr. Jennifer Katzenstein says many children are showing signs of increased anxiety and depression.

The pressures of the pandemic effect kids as young as toddlers and as old as high school age.

She suggests looking for changes in irritability.

To help, be sure to check in with your child often.

Maintain open communication and listen before responding.
