Talking to Your Children About Violence

In the wake of the violent events at the Boston Marathon on Monday, we wanted to provide you with reliable resources that can help you discuss a difficult topic like this with children. Below are some resources provided to us by Scholastic that may help discussing these sensitive topics with your children.

"Talking to Children About Community Violence" is a tip sheet from the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry about how to handle discussions with kids about violence in local communities.
"Talking to Your Kids About Natural Disasters, War, and Violence" is a Scholastic article that offers advice from a child-development expert about how to talk with kids about disturbing news.

Scholastic has also posted an age-appropriate news article about the tragic events in Boston. Click here for Scholastic News Online's coverage.
