Resource for Talking with Children About Violence



This is a follow up to the message I sent last night.  I shared with you that MCPS would be providing us with more information, so I am passing that along to you. I know children will be out and about this weekend with friends and families. I have included aMCPS link that includes tips for parents. In addition, I have attached a document (provided by MCPS) that was shared with principals last night. I anticipate that students will have questions about yesterday’s tragedy and look to their family for information and support. Experts recommend that parents talk with their children, acknowledge their feelings, and limit exposure to news coverage of the event.
