How can parents help children understand the traumatic events they are exposed to on the news, the internet, social media and even in their own communities? This presentation will help parents learn how to help their children cope with traumatic events. We discuss the importance of parents being available to listen to how children are feeling and providing a close relationship children can turn to for help with losses and their feelings, how parents can best regulate access to digital media to protect children, and the value of parents getting help with their own intense reactions to traumatic events. Special consideration will be given to helping children, including racial minority children, who are exposed to violence in their own communities--when the breaking news is real life news.
