Less is better; don't expose your child to news unless you have to. In the event your child did hear something and asks questions, answer them with simplicity. You don't have to give long philosophical discussions. When answering questions project calmness and confidence in your answers in a nurturing environment. Don't keep the TV on when your child is running around the house, they don't need to be exposed to all of the pictures flashing across the screen. Give your children lots of love and answer questions that come up with certainty. Also answer questions in a developmentally appropriate way. For example, young children need to feel secure and safe. Reassure them that this is a rare event. Try to establish their routine as soon as possible. Young children aren't as good at verbalizing their emotions and may act out behaviorally. Watch for behavioral signs of distress. Most importantly, be patient...healing takes time.
