When the Unthinkable Becomes Normal: How To Talk To Your Child About Mass Shootings

As parents, we often feel helpless in the face of pervasive gun violence. From unrelenting media coverage to active shooter drills at our children’s schools, mass shootings are constantly in our collective consciousness. And with so much of our own anxiety to handle, it’s even harder to help our children cope with theirs.

This year, the U.S. is averaging 1.5 mass shootings a day. These tragedies not only kill and injure thousands but also traumatize millions. Join the Child Mind Institute and Fort Health for this free webinar to get practical parenting advice on how to talk to children and teens about mass shootings.
