Child AdvocacyProfessorCourseDatePeople react differently to disasters and children are no different. In most cases, children are the most affected by disasters as they do not fully understand what happened. Some children will show signs of anxiety while others will not let their feelings show. For this reason, it is important for school administration to develop strategies that will help these children cope with disasters. The school help children cope with disasters by providing safe and reassuring environment. Some children may want to talk while others may not. After a disaster, all forms of expressions are allowed. Classroom discussions are optional where the teacher asks open end questions and allow for discussions to take place without interruptions. The discussion leader encourages listening and leaves his or her own feelings outside the discussions. Other children may prefer drawing, painting or writing their feelings. Children can choose what method they are comfortable with but are not forced (New York university child study center, 2006). The school helps children cope with disasters by returning to their normal routine as soon as possible. Children function better in a routine as they know what to expect in their day to day life. A routine shows the child that they have not lost control of the situation due to the disaster.The school provides mental health professionals to cater for children that need extra help to cope with disaste
