How parents, relatives, teachers and friends talk to children about times of crisis matters.

Children process the world differently than adults and are sensitive and aware of how the grown-ups around them feel about just about everything. In times of crisis or in the wake of a tragic event, it can be difficult for adults to address the concerns and fears of children. If you are having trouble talking about last Friday’s horrific events with your child these links might help.
