Talking to Children About Violence
High profile acts of violence, particularly in schools, can confuse and frighten children who may feel in danger or worry that their friends or loved-ones are at risk.

For guidance with talking to your child, please read the following recommendations from the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP).
