PLEASE NOTE!!! Some games may be too intense for really young kids. You know
your kid and if they like action games then check the games out. Sometimes
games that force us to face our fears (like tornadoes with me) helps us deal
better but everyone is different;i.e; the Tornado
Alley game is designed to zap twisters so they don't hurt the city (inspired
in part by real theory on a show I saw which was "Hacking the
Planet". The theory is that cold hitting the botton
of a tornado breaks it up. Again, this is just a game and theory is still
just theory but if it becomes a means to fight these things, I will be glad.
When you have your basic safety needs have been met of temporary food,
clothing and shelter, if you're a family with kids there will be times you
have to deal with their stresses and concerns. It is so important to stay
positive, let them know that things will get better and especially have fun
activities such as card or board games or just reading stories can help alot. Additionally, we have family friendly site cartoons and 3D video games(PC only) that can help pass the time during the stress
of displacement. ..
You can refer
to dealing with the stress
section for additional ideas. Having a positive attitude is a challenge
but kids tend to imitate what they see us adults doing.
