Loveland School District Superintendent, Dr. John Marschhausen passes along "Parent Guidlines for Helping Youth after the Recent Shooting" to Loveland Magazine readers. It was forwarded to him by Candice Paolino, the Counselor at the Loveland Primary School and the Loveland Early Childhood Center.
It is from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.
Children's and teen’s reactions to the shooting are strongly influenced by how parents, relatives, teachers, and other caregivers respond to the event. They often turn to these adults for information, comfort, and help. There are many reactions that are common after mass violence. These generally diminish with time, but knowing about them can help you to be supportive, both of yourself and your children.
