How to Talk to Kids About the Newtown Tragedy
12/17/2012   Reported By: Ed Morin

For parents, and for educators, one of the hardest things to do in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy is find ways to talk to children -- especially young children -- about what happened. And answer questions that might not have easy answers, like, "Why?" Many parents and teachers have already been having these conversations. But because of the snow day, some kids will be going back to school for the first time tomorrow, where they might hear things on the playground or in the classroom.  MPBN's Ed Morin talks with Susan Giambalvo, the Program Director for the Center for Grieving Children.
