S is for Security

More than ever, we need to reassure our children that they are safe and secure. We can do that in many ways:

  • Limit exposure to TV, adult conversations.
  • Give children only the information they need to know.
  • Help them understand that images on TV are far-away events, not impending threats.
  • Avoid overreacting.
  • Watch for children's unspoken reactions.
  • Listen to what our children have to say and reassure them that their feelings are normal.
