An organization that works in favor of Danish children, whose message was relayed by the Danish football federation, gave advice to the parents of the children who could have been shocked by the cardiac arrest of Christian Eriksen on Saturday.
The approach is all the more beautiful as it is important or even fundamental. The Danish Federation thinks about the mental health of everyone, and not just that of its players. This is why she wanted to relay the message of Borns Vilkar, a humanitarian organization that works in favor of all children in Denmark, especially those who are the most in difficulty.
A message which aims to give advice to the parents of the children present in Copenhagen, during the match between Denmark and Finland, marked by the spectacular cardiac arrest of midfielder Christian Eriksen. Advice that will allow them to know how to broach the delicate subject with their children, who could have been touched by the images.
Protect children from images
“Many parents have probably already told their children about what happened. But these kinds of images can be difficult to get out of their mind, one can read on the site of Borns Vilkar. Some children can. think about it very often and be affected by it for a long time. Others will only hear about it at school or elsewhere, and may need help figuring out what it is. shocking can vary widely. ” Borns Vilkar thus offers a whole range of advice intended for parents, to whom, for example, she suggests allowing children to discuss this subject freely, whatever the mode of expression.
“Talk to other adults,” she also advocates, just as she feels it necessary to protect children from the influx of images so that they “don’t get more images or information that he does not already have or need “. Towards the end of Denmark-Finland’s first period, far from the ball and any opponents, Eriksen collapsed abruptly on the pitch, his eyes rolled back. The Denmark-Finland game had been interrupted as the Danes, some of them in tears, gathered to form a circle around the 29-year-old midfielder and hide him from view. The match then resumed and ended in a defeat for the Danes (1-0).
