If a crisis occurs involving travel how do you talk to your child about it?

If there's a crisis that involves travel -- planes, trains, and automobiles for example -- and your child is really anxious, maybe about an upcoming plane trip, take a deep breath. Sit down, talk with your child and review, "Look, this is what is done here to keep you safe when you're in the air."

If you're traveling with your child say, "I'm going to be with you, and we're going to do everything we can to keep you safe." But for every crisis that happens in an airplane or on a train, or even in auto accidents, remind your child that all around the world, millions of people are traveling every day and getting to their destinations totally safely.

The other thing to remember is usually after some kind of a crisis, safety measures everywhere are reviewed and strengthened. So assure your child that you're going to do everything you can to keep him safe. And if it makes them feel better and it's part of your family values, make sure to say a little prayer before you hop on the plane, the train, or get in the car.
