Young children shouldn’t have to learn about tragic events, but they do. Some are exposed to disasters and tragedies firsthand, as victims. Others discover the tragedies by watching the news or overhearing adults or other children discussing the events. It is a sad fact that all children need to know how to deal with tragic events—and their parents and caregivers need to know how to help them cope.
Please see the attached information from the National Association of Elementary Principals for resources to help parents and caregivers help their children cope with tragedy.
