If you have preschool or school aged children in your care please turn off the news! Do not allow them to watch the coverage of the horrific school shooting yesterday in Texas. As a therapist I can tell you that those of us who work with children will have many anxious kids to see in the last days of school if they’re allowed to watch what is likely to be 24 hour coverage. Young children do not have the coping skills to handle it and it will make them anxious. Even if they don’t understand exactly what has happened, they will pick up on the tension and anxiety of the adults around them and that will increase their own stress and anxiety. Please minimize what they are exposed to!
