A parent of three young children, ages 8, 5, and 1, recently asked me how old kids should be to start talking to them about disasters and emergency preparedness. Much depends on the child’s maturity level, and as with most discussions that tend to be on-going as the child grows, simple, clear, and basic information is best.
DAY 22 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts For today’s challenge, we want you to tell us how you would talk to a child about emergency preparedness. What would you focus on, and how would you get them to begin thinking about it in a positive, “I can do this!” way?
Level Up: 5 pts Have your kid(s) help you create an age appropriate emergency kit for themselves. Post a photo or video of it (your child(ren) don’t have to be visible).
Don’t have any kids? Create two or three water bottle kits and donate them. Don’t forget the photo!
