What should adults do about a child who shows signs of a school shooter?

Michele Borba
Psychology
Educator lesson: Talk as a staff about students who may be displaying signs of a school shooter. Hold those "courageous conversations" in which you discuss kids who you know may be hurting or whose behavior concerns you. Report your concerns to the counseling staff and to the child's parents.

Parent lesson: Tune in to your child closer. Are you noticing a change in his behavior that lasts too long, has become too intense, is spilling over into too many other areas of his life and just is too different from his typical self? If so, seek professional help now.
