Stephanie Weiss, the host of Families In Action – heard Mondays at Noon offers these tips for your kids:

 

  • Talk to your kids about how they are feeling.
  • Remember, ask them what scares them the most.
  • Listen to them and answer all questions.
  • Remember, when the crisis and fear is gone for you, your kids may still be fearful.

Have a family plan and talk about fire safety:

  1. Upstairs and downstairs meeting places.
  2. Have a list of important phone numbers that each family member has.
  3. Make sure your family has an emergency meeting place outside your home.
