Once again we are faced with a tragedy at a national level. With so much news coverage and social media, it is hard to protect our kids from the terrible news. Tom and I, along with Wayne Stocks and Linda Ranson Jacobs recorded a cmconnect radio podcast a while back about how to talk to kids about a tragic event.
You can listen to that discussion here
I have also put together a link of some other useful resources that could help have those difficult discussions. Hopefully they can help you or the families that you minister to.
There are links to focus on the family, Linda Jacobs, Brian Dollar, and more, all articles written to help have age appropriate discussions about tragic events with your children.
Be sure to post a comment if you have a resource I can link to.
