Sandy Hook--What to Tell Your Young Children


The tragedy at Sandy Hook is too terrible for words. Heart-breaking….Gut-wrenching…Terrifying… Devastating. Nothing seems to appropriately capture the overwhelming flood of emotions.  The fact that this tragedy happened on a Friday gives those of us who are parents a couple of days to start to process what has happened and figure out what to tell our children. On Monday, our kids will be back at school and we need to prepare them for what they might hear both officially from their school as well as on the playground.
