Talking to Children About Terrorism - FS635
Children, especially young children, may experience challenging emotions when faced with stress resulting from exposure to terrorist acts. From the bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City to the tragedy of Sept. 11 to terrorist events that occur in other parts of the world (for example, Israel, Spain, London, Pakistan), exposure to terrorism and its graphic results is a difficult experience for many children. Parents and other adults can best support children through kindness, understanding and reassurance.
