TAKING ACTION: SUPPORTING CHILDREN AND FAMILIES IN NEED 1 Action Plan 1: Understanding Needs of Children and their Families affected by Natural Disaster 1. Acknowledge and Normalize the Child’s Feelings It is important to let children ask questions. Sympathize and empathize with the children and assure them of their feelings. 2. Give Children Extra Time and Attention Reassure children that they are safe and continue to play and interact with the child. 3. Permit Children to Discuss their Feelings Some children may be withdrawn, while others may not show any signs at all, it is vital to discuss the child’s feelings. Remain open-minded and allow the child to express themselves while still comforting child and leading by example. 4. Allow Children to be Children All children cope in different ways and older children may show various signs of coping mechanisms. It is here when we have to know when to allow certain behaviors such as anger or when to reach out to more professionally suited individuals to speak with children that are deeply affected by natural disasters. 5. Provide Routine Do not remove children from their normal routine. Children that have suffered from disaster need to have a normal routine.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
