Make sure that kids feel that they’re an important part of the community. It will help them feel safe, secure, and supported.

Watch the video together, then talk about what your community has to offer. You might also:

  • Build routines that are predictable and involve going out in the community. Make sure kids know that they have caring people all around them.
  • Find out what activities the kids enjoy. Encourage them to get involved in school, sports, religious organizations, whatever they’re interested in. Feeling connected leads to a sense of well-being.
  • Communication is key. Make sure everyone knows what’s happening next so that they’re prepared for coming changes!
