Tips to Help Children Cope with Difficult Transitions
Our experts share tips on how to help children make difficult social transitions, like returning to school.
The United States has surpassed 100 mass shootings in 2023, a grim milestone.
Mass shootings and school shootings may spark feelings of stress, grief and anxiety in children. Many students, including Kindergarteners as young as five years old, participate in active shooter drills at school. Their awareness of school shootings can lead to emotional conversations filled with complex questions.
Here, Save the Children’s emergency response experts offer tips to help you talk to children about school shootings.
Our schools should be safe places where children can learn without fear of gun violence. We urge policymakers and community leaders to come together and work to protect schools and end the scourge of gun violence our children face every day. Our nation must do a better job at preventing all forms of violence—including gun violence—in our schools.
