Talking to your child about school violence

As parents, it’s natural for us to worry about our children. We try our best to help them over life’s hurdles and protect them from the dangers of the world. When the time comes to send them off to school, we trust that we’re leaving them in safe and capable hands. However, certain events are out of our control. Occasionally, a rare act of school violence is committed, shattering that trust and upending our sense of security. It’s important to give our children support as we all work to come to terms with such a devastating event.
