Adults need to protect children from psychological trauma during evacuation and adaptation to a new place.

To avoid stressful situations as much as possible, the following algorithm should be followed:

  1. Explain to the child that evacuation is a necessary measure to keep the family safe.
  2. Explain that you will return home when the security situation stabilizes.
  3. On the way, entertain your child with games, talk with them to distract, and maintain and convey your own calmness and confidence.
  4. Agree on the rules of behavior, in particular: in a dangerous situation, the child must fulfill your requests immediately and without argument.
