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