Talking to Young People About Violence
As a parent, it is my fervent prayer that my own children never have to leave their school with their arms raised over their head as the first responders storm the buildings. As has happened so many times already, we see yet another school shooting in the news.
For all those who are parents or who work with young people, we have gathered resources we think you will find helpful in light of the events of the last several months.
