Disasters can be scary for anyone. Children think about the world in a different way than adults. And they may have a hard time letting you know how they feel or what they need. Remember that children often look to adults to learn how to respond. So they may be affected by your reactions. Be open and honest with your children about your concerns, but try not to alarm or panic them. Children’s behavior is based on their age and how directly they were affected. Keep reading to learn how children may respond to a crisis and how you can support them.

Learn how to see the warning signs. You can seek help from a doctor or counselor. And you can call us. We’re here 24/7 to support you and your family members after a crisis.
