    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.
