How To Come To Terms With The Sandy Hook Shootings

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadFamilyPerezcious ParentingSchool

After the Sandy Hook tragedy, many people are lost and in despair.

How are some people feeling after this terrible tragedy?

Here's what an expert had to say about it:

"I think the people on the ground are feeling a sense of hopelessness because there is no way to justify what happened. They need to be around other people who have experienced and understand it. If you were all involved together, you can empathize and grieve together. They rethink what they did that day and wonder if they in some way contributed to the death of a sibling, or they wonder, why did I survive?"

One of the hardest tasks a parent today has is trying to help their children cope with this unthinkable tragedy, but there is advice out there to help all of us.

Here's what one expert said:

"Kindergarteners and first graders don't need to be told about it unless you think they will hear it somewhere else. For older kids, you have to get to know what they know, answer any questions they might have, and be truthful – but don't say too much. Say that a person who was having problems, that was sick, went into a school and injured some people for no particular reason. Tell them it would never happen at their school."

We know this is such a tough subject to discuss with your little loved ones, but we think it is important to comfort them and remind them that they are absolutely safe.
