Yes, you can get your kids to wear masks. Here's how.

Experts weigh in on how to enforce the rules, especially when you can’t be around.

When Dylan Ekins started kindergarten in Florida last year, he wore a mask over his nose and mouth. He and his older brother Carter had a collection of coverings ranging from prints with crayons to superheroes to movie characters.

Building the collection wasn't a problem, but for their mom, Katie, getting the boys to wear them proved challenging.

“We talked to Dylan about it and explained that he was going have to wear a mask,” she says. “He was not happy.”
