Raising children for emergency situations “warmly watch over children”

In high strained situations, parents with small children are pushing themselves to their limit and trying too hard. It is natural thing for babies to cry and for kids to make a lot of noise. Please warmly watch over children with others around you.

○You felt very stressed for emergency situations, so it’s natural to feel irritable. Do not get stressed out by blaming yourself for feeling irritable.
○Small Children often get stressed out within themselves because they can’t express their fears and anxieties with words. They feel relieved in contact with others. So, please hug and piggyback them as many times as you can.
○Please be careful to prevent children from watching news about disasters too much. Such kinds of news often grow their anxieties.
○Playing a game of make-believe about earthquakes is one of the processes for children to overcome their fears and anxieties through games. Please warmly watch over them as long as you can.
