kids' mental health + school shootings

In the past two decades, school shootings have unfortunately become more common. Doctors are trying to learn more about how children not directly affected by a school shooting are faring.  American children witness the news, sense the fear among parents and teachers and have lost a sense of security and safety at school.  Dr. Scholzman of Harvard Medical School also says that lockdown drills scare children, especially younger ones. He encourages parents to get involved and talk to their schools about any concerns they may have. When talking to your children, try not to dismiss them, but say "there is a concern for safety in schools, but there are lots of people doing their best to protect you." If your child is too anxious to go to school, it may be best to seek professional help. usnews
