How do you talk about mass shootings with your kids?

I'm gutted by what is happening in our country and especially how I'm going to talk to my older one about all this in an age appropriate way. How have you approached talking about it with your kids?

    Is your oldest 4? That seems a little young to go into details. If anything, just talk about safety with staying close to parents or caretaker in these situations. Did your 4 year old ask about it? You don’t want to scare them. Preserve their childhood. Just remind them that parents, teachers, caretakers are there to keep them safe while they play so it’s important to follow rules and look to them for help if you need it.
