"How do I talk to my kids about school shootings?"

Given the amount of gun violence occurring in this country, students today are increasingly worried about their own safety in the classroom. As parents, what can we do when our child comes to us about gun violence in schools? This week’s Tips On Teens question comes from a parent seeking advice on what to say to their kids following the recent mass shootings.

“The recent shooting at Saugus High School has left me both sad and angry. I am also worried about how to talk to my kids about this. How do I explain to my kids that these shooting will continue to keep happening and how do I reassure them that they are safe at school? I don’t know if they are safe, but I don’t know what else to do.”
