It is with a terribly, terribly heavy heart and many tears that I share the following resources with you following the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, today. I know your children will be coming home from school today and may hear the news. Since you may be seeking guidance on how to speak with your children, young or old, about the school shooting, I’ve rounded up several links from excellent expert organizations for you:
In times like these, when you’re not sure what to do, or how or if to talk about such tragedies, it is so helpful to be able to access the guidance of child health experts. I hope you find this list helpful. If you know of other excellent resources, please be sure to share them in the comments below so that other parents will know about them.
Also, I’m hearing from many parents who are themselves having trouble coping with this news. Bear with me — working hard to put together a different resource guide for adults.
On a personal note, my heart is broken for the loss of all these beautiful babies. I’m praying for every family.
