  • Consider limiting the amount of media exposure 

  • Encourage children to ask questions and use age appropriate explanations

  • Make and keep a schedule while at home and away from regular activities.  Keep meals, bedtime and other routines as close to typical as possible

  • Model calm

  • Take time to have FUN and enjoy time together
