Learn to recognise children’s emotions

Learn to recognise when your child is feeling sad, anxious or frightened, and be ready to listen.

  • Never discount their feelings, eg by saying “that’s silly” or “just snap out of it”
  • Don’t overreact to things said that worry you
  • Talk directly to kids about daily fears that often arise from the media, eg. terrorism and murder
