In recent days, and over the last few weeks, we have witnessed tragedies both man-made and natural. It is challenging to understand how to talk to children about what they may see, read, or hear regarding what is going on in the wider world. Truthfully, it can be hard at times for adults to understand their own feelings about these types of events.

The National Association of Independent Schools shared these resources that may be helpful when talking with kids about tragedies and disasters:


We are fortunate to work and live in a safe, supportive community. How we -- teachers and parents -- care for the students daily is one of the most important ways to help each child feel safe and centered. Please let us know if we can be of any help or if your child is affected by the recent series of upsetting events.
