Talking to Children About the Bombings

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network

January 1, 2016

The recent bombings evoke many emotions — shock, fear, anger, helplessness, anxiety, grief, and sadness. Children struggling with their thoughts and feelings about the stories and images of the bombings will turn to adults for comfort and answers. Children need to hear that their parents/caregivers will keep them safe.
