A Bend counselor says children may be especially shocked by today's fatal school shooting- especially on the heels of the fatal mall shooting here in Oregon a few days ago.

 

Counselor Jane Meyers also says you should probably shelter young children from TV reports and other dramatic visual images of the shooting.

 

"They're just too little - they're too little to process those images and so the very best thing a parent can do is to keep them away from it and they've heard about it I think the best way you can explain it to young kids is to say there are people in the world who are very sick- just like you get sick with the flu- they are sick in their hearts- they do things that don't make any sense."

 

She says to balance out all of the negative media coverage you can tell your children and grandchildren that there are many more good, non-violent people in the world.  Its also good to find stories about heroes of tell your kids about those people.  One example that is circulating on Facebook today is about a woman in Nazi Germany who risked her life and was able to save about 25 hundred children from the concentration camps.
