1. Share hugs! Remember to hug your child as often as you can. They should feel that you are near to them, and they are near to you!
  2. Be honest. It is important to be open with your child about what is going on in their community. You may not need to go into details, but patiently explain the situation to your child.
  3. Have fun together! Spending time together reading a book, playing a game, or simply sharing a conversation will help your child grow, even during difficult times.
  4. Create a calm atmosphere. Behaving in a calm manner around your child will help them to adapt smoothly to difficult situations. It is important to keep their usual daily routines consistent even as family living conditions may change.
