Consider setting up counselling for your children so they will have emotional support when you leave. You may need to get their father’s consent or a court order for this.
Toys and other important possessions
Talk to your children about their most prized possessions and encourage them to keep them all in one place in case of an emergency.
Carry a recent photo of your children with you and/or have one on your phone in case you need emergency assistance to find them.
Develop a safety plan with your children so they know what to do in an emergency. See the “Safety planning” section for tips.
