Emergency Preparedness: Helping Children Cope
Children are influenced by behaviors and will react based on how they view
parents and other adults responding to the emergency. Here are steps you can take to help children cope with an emergency:
• Reduce their exposure to TV and radio coverage of the situation.
• Listen to their concerns and don’t deny what is happening.
• Briefly share facts about the event and use language they understand.
• Encourage them to express feelings by painting or drawing.
• Reestablish their daily routine; it brings stability back to their lives.
