The following tips for parents were prepared as part of the All-Ukrainian Mental Health Program “How are you?” at the initiative of First Lady Olena Zelenska.

Prepare children for school:

  1. Wake up and go to bed early as a family.
  2. Organize your clothes: put your school clothes on the shelves.
  3. Pack a backpack, make a badge with the child’s name, and contact information of parents, guardians, or relatives.
  4. Prepare a place to study.

Be safe:

  1. Walk to school with your child several times. Pay attention to where there are shelters along the way.
  2. If possible, walk inside the school. It is essential for children to “feel” the place where they will be learning. For example, visit the classrooms, canteen, etc.
  3. If your child will be studying online, explain his or her actions during the air raid.

Relationships with classmates:

  1. Organize an online meeting with them, and give them time to talk.
  2. Start an online group for informal communication.
