Regardless of your child’s age, they may feel upset or have other strong emotions after an emergency. Some children react right away, while others may show signs of difficulty much later. How children react, or common signs of distress can vary according to age. Knowing how to help children cope after an emergency can help them stay healthy in future crises.
An emergency can happen anywhere and at any time. Parents must know what steps to take before, during, and after an emergency to protect their family. Parents ensure family members are ready and know what to do during emergencies.
