It’s a difficult topic to approach, but with the rise in school shootings, talking to our kids about gun violence is more important than ever. Jennifer Wickham, a child psychotherapist with Mayo Clinic, offers some tips to start the conversation. She says what’s important is, “Letting the child know that we're there to listen to any of their worries they have when they're ready to talk about it but not to avoid it and not to hide it because these… things are, unfortunately, part of our life and we want our children to be prepared.”
