A big thunderstorm just rolled through, which reminded me that tornado season is starting up again. Which fills me with dread. Tornadoes scare the stuffing out of me.
They – and other natural disasters – might scare your kids or students as well. So here’s two resources to help:
DHS/FEMA has a kid-oriented page (with a section for parents and teachers). There’s lots of information, games, and activities here.
And then specifically for parents and teachers, the American Association of Pediatrics has a disaster page. Kids will react differently than adults to the same stress; this resource helps you understand and prepare for it.
