Talking with Children about Tragedy
Dear LexFUN! Members,
We wanted to reach out to our membership given the tragic happenings in Newtown, CT in December 2012. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the families impacted at Sandy Hook Elementary School and our hearts are broken.
Given how difficult a topic like this is to share with our little ones, and given that many of our member families do not yet have elementary school-aged children, we wanted to share some resources with you about talking with children about tragedy.How To Talk with Kids about Tragedies Like School Shooting

Library Books to Help Kids Cope with Newtown Tragedy
Helping Kids Cope with Tragic National Events
Life and families are precious. Hug your children and we will be doing the same.
Meredith Applegate and Patrice Cleaves on behalf of the entire LexFUN! Board
