Helping children cope in unsettling times
Current world events are very unsettling. Wars, economic difficulties and the nation's heightened state of alert can cause justifiable anxiety. The uncertainty of terrorist warnings can be especially unnerving. Children may be confused or fearful that they or their loved ones are at risk. Adults need to help children feel safe, even if they themselves feel vulnerable. Parents and teachers can help children understand what is happening factually, how events do or do not impact their lives, and how to cope with their reactions.
Schools and parents need to assess what level of support children in their care need. There are some suggestions on how to help children cope.
