Suppose the alarm is starting and we must reach shelter as soon as possible for fear of falling missiles.
Our 2 y/o daughter understands most words and conditions, but I can't think of a good way to explain such a situation to her especially if it will happen in the middle of the night and she's forced out of sleep.
I believe many parents will make it a game for their children, for example "Let's race to the shelter, the winner get a candy" or "this noisy sound means we start a running contest" etc. However shouldn't we explain the real situation? At what age is it appropriate?
Are there other things to consider?
