Talking To Your Children About Violent Events
Although we would like to protect our children from hearing about events like the Boston Marathon bombings, the school or movie theater shootings in Newtown, CT and Aurora, CO the repeated images and reporting on television and internet postings don’t allow this. But what we can do is talk about these events to our children to help them understand what happened and to help them cope with their emotions in a healthy manner. For suggested steps to help you appropriately address the questions, concerns and feelings of anxiety that your children may have, please click here.
