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. They will look to adults for information and guidance on how to react. For guidance with talking to your child, please read the following recommendations from the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP).
