The mass shooting Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., shocked us all. The unbelievable reality of 20 young children being killed, 10 days before Christmas, is almost more than adults can process. So parents must be very careful how much young children are exposed to this event.
The effects from this shooting, the nation's second deadliest, will be far-reaching. As a mother as well as a life coach, with firsthand experience with violence and threats toward children, I know it will take time and work to regain a sense of safety.
Some suggestions can guide you as you help your children process their fear.
