When tragedy strikes, it’s very difficult to know how and when to share the news with our children. The age and maturity level of your child will play a big factor to determine if/when you share tragedies with your kids. We’ve gathered resources below to help you make the best decisions for your children. This list will be updated as more resources are found. To contribute resources, email
