Helping Children Process the Connecticut Tragedy

Dec 17, 2012

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  As the nation continues to wrestle with the shootings in Connecticut, a mid-state professor is offering suggestions on how to help children process the tragedy.

Dr. Kathy Burriss is a professor of Early Childhood Development in the  Middle Tennessee State College of Education. She suggests that the amount of news coverage about the tragedy children are exposed to should be limited, and that what they do watch should only be viewed as a family so that parents can answer any questions that may arise.
