How To Prepare Your Children for a Hurricane

hurricanefloridaHurricanes can be very scary, wind howling, rain, and the possibilities of Tornado’s. We prepare the best we can, keeping a chart of the on coming storm, getting in supplies and making sure there is enough water for the days when there will be no electricity and possibly no drinking water.

Your children should be a part of your preparations. Let them know about how a hurricane works in a basic way they will understand depending on their age and always assure them that they can be safe.

Depending on the strength of the storm and what type of home you live in, you may be required to go to a shelter. Uprooting your kids, and then taking them to an unfamiliar place can be stressful for you and them. Prepare them ahead of time by packing a special suitcase or backpack with their clothes and special toys, coloring books, or stuffed animal they are attached to and let them know they are going to a safe place from the storm. Even if you do not have to leave, you and your children are prepared to go quickly.

If you are staying in your home during a hurricane, let them know that their lives after the hurricane may be disrupted. The TV, video game machines etc, will not be accessible to them because there will be no electricity. Think ahead and have them help you prepare a space in a room, or table with books, paper, crayons, craft supplies for small projects, puzzles, cards, etc. It would be a good idea to have them do the grocery shopping with you to and have special treats to look forward to. They will also see that shopping for a storm is different then your normal grocery list.

With the storm approaching, have them sit with you and listen to the storm updates, and follow the storm on a chart. Ask them if they have any questions about the storm and what fears they may have. Addressing these fears with them and letting them know that you are there for them will be less stress on them.

Once an alert is issued for your area, you may not be able to purchase or change a policy.
