Disaster Discussions in Miramar?
SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar restores storm damage for Miramar residents throughout the year. Severe weather and other natural disasters can happen at any time and with little advanced warning. Being prepared for disasters also includes preparing our children for them. How we respond in emergencies will inform how our children react. Here are some tips for speaking with your children during a disaster from the American Red Cross:
Feelings of fear are healthy and natural, but in a disaster, your children will be looking to you for clues on how to act:
If you show alarm, your child may become more scared, seeing your fear as proof that the danger is real.
If you seem overcome with loss, your child may feel their losses more strongly.
If you can demonstrate that you feel calm and in control, your child may feel more confident and better able to cope in a disaster situation.
A Child Who Feels Afraid Is Afraid
Your child may experience the emergency as being bigger than it actually is. Children’s fears can be increased by their imagination, and you should take these feelings seriously. Your words and actions can provide reassurance; be sure to present a realistic picture that is both honest and manageable.
