LadyBugOut emergency bag is built for your child’s unique physical, social and emotional needs. But it’s more than a “bug-out” bag. It’s an interactive tool for your family to engage with and conquer the scary stuff together.
Created for the unique needs of children
Children need their own emergency bag? You’re right – your little one is unlikely to lead the neighborhood to safety, or trek on their own for days. However, FEMA says children are one of the most vulnerable communities and leading researchers have found that the psychological impacts of disasters on children is a great risk. Preparing them ahead of time by having conversations, familiarizing them, and engaging in practice increases a child’s confidence and security.
Children see the LadyBugOut bag as a bag of possibilities. Parents see it as an interactive tool to engage with their child about the scary stuff. Together, we will prepare you and your child to be more confident, empowered, and secure about life’s emergencies large and small.
