Resources From this Week's Community Zoom

Pike families,

Thank you to those of you who were able to join our Community Zoom this past Wednesday evening, in which we came together to collectively process our emotions, thoughts, and questions about the recent violence in Buffalo, New York. I have compiled some recommended resources to support you with developmentally-appropriate conversations at home about this tragic and upsetting event:

Mass General Hospital Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds: Another Shooting - An Important Moment to Comfort and Talk With Our Kids

Common Sense Media: How to Talk to Kids About Violence, Crime, and War (includes age-specific guidelines)

American Psychological Association: Helping your children manage distress in the aftermath of a shooting

Please do not hesitate to reach out if my office can support your family in any way.
