If your child is under age two, the Centers for Disease Control and The American Academy of Pediatrics don't recommend a mask.
Jessica Dean says her 8-year-old son is getting used to face coverings. She believes it has to become a habit.
"I don't even think it's an age thing," said Dean.
"I think once they see that it's something humans have to do right now, I think they will be willing to do it," she continued.

Bregetta Wilson's 12-year-old daughter is doing well with wearing masks. The face coverings though are not as comfortable for her 10-year-old son.
"He has sensitive skin. He doesn't like it on for too long, but he'll wear it for a little bit of time," Wilson said.
As a mother of two boys, ages 4 and 6, I decided to see how they would do with wearing masks indoors.
We also asked parents on ourTMJ4 News Facebook page, "Would your kids keep a face mask on all day if their school required it?"
Out of more than 2,000 votes, 33 percent said "yes" and 67 percent said "no."
Dr. Christen Mcalpine-Tesfai, a pediatrician at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin says it's really important to explain to kids why we keep a mask on, which is to keep ourselves and others safe.
"If they can try and practice during the summer period that will help them be a little more prepared for when school resumes in fall in person," said Mcalpine-Tesfai.
On a stuffed animal, she showed us how the mask needs to cover a child's nose and under their chin. She encourages families to lead by example.
"If they see mommy and daddy wearing masks I think it helps to normalize it," she continued.
If your child is intimated by the mask-wearing look, she explains how to ease that anxiety.
"Kids can see that you're smiling through your eyes, and there are other gestures that can make a child feel more comfortable," she said.
"Many times, the kids are just fine when they realize, I recognize that voice, or I remember those eyes."
