How parents can talk to their kids about events like mass shootings

The recent shooting has evoked many emotions—sadness, grief, helplessness, anxiety, and anger. Children who are struggling with their thoughts and feelings about the stories and images of the shooting may turn to trusted adults for help and guidance. 

Do you say nothing to your kids? How much do you say? What should you say.

This is a wonderful resource that will help provide guidance.


One-Day Grief Camp for Kids Affected by Violence

 This event is coming up October 14 and while it was planned before the Las Vegas shooting it seems very pertinent....

The death of a friend or family member can sometimes make coping difficult, but a multitude of other issues and emotions is added to the mix when the death was caused by violence. Hospice Savannah’s Full Circle will hold a one-day camp for kids, ages 6 – 17, whose loved ones or friends died by gun violence, on Saturday, October 14, from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Trained volunteers and professionals will provide therapeutic activities to teach the children lifelong coping skills and ways to process their experience. Snacks will be included. The Camp will be held at Full Circle Grief & Loss Center located in The Demere Center for Living at 6000 Business Center Drive off Chatham Parkway in Savannah.  Help is offered at no charge as a community service of not for profit Hospice Savannah, Inc. To register your child, or for more information, call bereavement counselor, Barbara Moss, at 912.629.1089
