Talking with kids about traumatic events

The school shooting today in Connecticut is almost beyond imagining. My heart is heavy thinking of the grief of so many families. I also know that there will be families all over the country tonight struggling with how to talk with their children about these events. The amazing people at Sesame Street have a great parent toolkit called You Can Ask! that models how to address worries and fears and talk about scary events. You can find it here: You Can Ask!
