The horrible tragedy in Oklahoma this week makes me wonder how children recover from these events. My children were recently in a car accident that resulted in significant car damage but only dings and scratches to my children. And it was very stressful for my family.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has a webpage with many good resources for dealing with these tragedies. You may find it helpful, whether you are thinking about how to discuss these with your children or you yourself are responding to catastrophic event. Here is a link to the American Academy of Pediatrics webpage.
