Crisis situations, such as security incidents, earthquakes and floods, are on the increase and often leave families very vulnerable. Parents that have lived through crisis situations have reported how concerned they are about their children’s wellbeing. When facing the many physical consequences of crisis contexts, parents often struggle to know how best to respond to their children.
The information here aims to help you by providing some ideas about how you can help both yourself and your children get through the challenges you may be facing, and how to stay connected as a family. You will probably find that you have already used some of the ideas and approaches in this booklet.
