What Should I Tell My Children About Swine Flu?

Question: What should I tell my children about swine flu?

Answer: You know, what should we tell our children about swine influenza? I mean they're getting a lot of information from the television anyway. I think the first and most important thing is to answer their questions. This is a new kind of influenza. It's making people sick in different parts of the country. We need to be very careful to do everything that we can, here at home, to prevent this and how do we do that? We wash our hands constantly. We try to stay away from people who are coughing and sneezing and if we get sick ourselves, we're going to stay at home, not go to school and we'll call the doctor.
