Helping Your Children Focus on the Good People in the World

When your children show signs of fear, grief and illness after being exposed to watching or hearing media reports of terroristic violence, there are many ways parents, caregivers and teachers can allay their fears.  Mr. Rogers said it beautifully in the above captioned quote.

For guidelines in helping your children handle their feelings, please see:
