- Provide a safe space so your child can express his/her feelings…and be sure to seek out support from other adults for your feelings as well.
- Talk with your child about how you can honor those affected by this event. Suggestions include: lighting a candle, saying a prayer, sending blessings of love and healing, attending the vigil with their parents, etc.
- Talk with your child about how you can show the power of love, not hate, in your daily actions. Suggestions include: speaking up for a child who is being bullied, inviting a child over to play whose family is different from yours, etc.
