Help Children Recover and Find Peace

What you should know and do when a school shooting or other violent event shatters your children’s sense of safety and peace:

  • Remember: most children and teens are resilient.
  • Limit exposure to media coverage, when possible.
  • Be aware of behavioral changes that go on for weeks.
  • Let your children share their feelings with you.
  • Get back to daily routines as soon as possible.
  • Allow time to grieve and find acceptance.
