Talking to Children About Terrorism

Talking to Children About TerrorismChildren, especially young children, may experience challenging emotions when faced with stress resulting from exposure to terrorist acts. From the recent bombing in Boston to terrorist events that occur in other parts of the world (e.g., Israel, Spain, London, Pakistan), exposure to terrorism and
its graphic results is a difficult experience for many children today. Parents and other adults can best
support children through kindness, understanding and reassurance.

NDSU Extension Service's publication, "Talking to Children About Terrorism," helps parents and other adults understand how children may respond to acts of terrorism, how adults can help children deal with the stress from terrorism and that some children may be at more risk for problems needing attention.
