Tips for Teachers and Parents
When a national tragedy occurs, such as a shooting at school, terrorist attack, or natural disaster, people will be confused or frightened—especially children. Most likely they will look to adults for information and guidance on how to react. Parents and school personnel should help children cope by establishing a sense of safety and security. As more information becomes available, adults can continue to help children work through their emotions and perhaps even use the process as a learning experience.
Imagine a crisp fall morning where you enjoy a morning stroll or bike ride around your neighborhood. No traffic jams, no honking, no radio commercials… just you, your family and your neighbors starting the day with your best foot forward. Sign me up! We are imagining National Walk or Bike to School Day, and while I can’t promise walking or biking to school will always be so idyllic, this October 9th is sure to be a refreshing change of pace from your everyday routine.
