Helping children cope with the tragic event at Sandy Hook Elementary School

Written on: December 20th, 2012 by: patty.langley in Blog Posts

The school violence at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT is having an impact on everyone, even those living thousands of miles away. If we, as adults, can’t begin to understand this incomprehensible act, how can we begin to answer the questions our children have?  How do we reassure them of their own safety?

There is now a Libguide on helping children cope with this tragic event. A list of books, websites, and videos are offered, not only to give parents, caregivers, and other adults the resources to process their own feelings, but also to answer children’s questions, to reassure them of their safety and to take positive steps toward the future.
