How To Keep Your Child Physically and Psychologically Safe In An Emergency

As a parent, you certainly understand what it means to try to keep your kids physically safe—you are doing this almost constantly. Sometimes you are the one providing the physical safety (e.g. childproofing your home). Other times, you are providing physical safety by teaching them how to keep themselves safe (e.g. looking both ways before crossing the street).
