How much exposure is appropriate for children when there are events like killing of children? @drpam
Limit media access? I would like for doctors from all disciplines to weigh in on this. There are so many ways children can get information that it is impossible to shelter them from bad news. My suggestion is limiting exposure to sights and sounds of violence and sitting down and carefully broaching difficult painful subjects with them, one on one. Please add your answers about how to explain why bad things happen.
Mr. Rogers. I follow mr. Rogers' advice: turning off tv, helping our kids feel secure, focusing on helpers. No matter how old we are, mr. Rogers has terrific advice. You can find more info here: http://www.Fci.Org/new-site/par-tragic-events.Html.
