With continued global warming, children born today are expected to face two to seven times more extreme climate events, such as heatwaves, in their lifetime compared to older generations (Thiery et al. 2021). However, research shows that awareness of the climate crisis is associated with emotional distress for children. How can we prepare children for extreme climate events that they might face, while mitigating the emotional distress of learning about climate change? How can we strike a balance between awareness and preparedness, and distressing emotional responses?
