-Listen carefully and intentionally.

-Stay calm when they become anxious talking about a situation or event.

-Reassure them they are safe and you are always available to listen.

-Encourage a normal routine/schedule.

-Encourage your child to express his/her feelings through writing, artwork or conversation.

-Make sure they are getting plenty of rest and eating well-balanced and regular meals.
