Here are some tips for helping your children cope with tragedies.
1. Adults should try to inform children without overwhelming them - let the kids themselves take the lead.
2. Answer questions but only answer questions they ask you. Children tend to ask questions at the developmental level where they can receive answers. If you let them guide the conversation you're in better shape.
