Q & A | How to talk to children about violent news events

Question:
I wondered if you know of anything written about how to talk with children about events like the Orlando shooting?

Answer:
The lay press will probably have some good ideas and interviews with professionals — and I’ll try to track down material. What seems to work best is letting the child express his/her feelings, discussing the issues realistically, and appropriately reassuring the child re: their own fears.
