Supporting your child during uncertain times

Every child is unique, and so is the effect of the recent events on them. How best to support your child with the current situation can be a challenge for parents. 


Children can react to crises differently, and it is common for them to have fears based on limited information or from not understanding what they were told about the event. During a time of uncertainty, spending time listening to your child becomes even more important. Other than hugs, you could first listen to their concerns, accept their feelings and emotions - anxious, nervous or upset - are all OK and normal — then you can frame your discussion about the situation appropriately and spare them unnecessary details. When they finish talking, ask them how they are feeling now and how you can help them. 


Consider your own reactions

Parents do not have every answer to every question, even though you want to protect your children. The uncertainty of this time is actually an opportunity for your children to learn about humanity - that there are things in the world that we might not have answers to at present, and we have no control over them. However, the only thing that you know for certain is that parents can always offer them love and support no matter what and when.


Help your child express their thoughts

Never force your child to talk if they do not want to, but let them know that you are always there for them. You can help them express their fear or worries too. Openly sharing how you are feeling and explaining what you are doing to help yourself feel better can encourage children to open up and talk about their feelings too. Try to address their concerns without dismissing or minimising them. Young children may need help to find the words to express their feelings. Offer them words to choose from by telling them it's normal to feel sad, upset or confused. You can do so through play, drawing, storytelling or other creative activities.
