Tips on Talking to Children About Violence

High profile acts of violence 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. NASP has many tips that can assist parents and school personnel in helping children feel safe by establishing a sense of normalcy and security and talking with them about their fears at this time. View those tips at http://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources/school-safety-and-crisis/talking-to-children-about-violence-tips-for-parents-and-teachers.
