Parents are faced with the difficult task of how to discuss recent events with their children in wake of the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio that left at least 29 people dead.
Child psychiatrist Victor Fornari with Northwell Health says parents might not want to tell young children about mass casualty events. He says parents should have answers ready if children ask.
Dr. Fornari says it's important to reassure children that the world is generally a safe place. He also suggests limiting the amount of conversation about the deadly shootings in front of the kids and to limit their exposure on TV and the radio.
