China Earthquake: Talking to Children about Tragedy

A news service in China has reported the death toll could be as high as 50 Thousand. 20 thousand have been confirmed dead with over ten thousand still buried. An entire village was completely buried as both sides of a mountain collapsed onto it. Even though they continue to search for survivors, it becomes more unlikely people will be found alive with each passing day.

This is an unbelievable tragedy. To put this in perspective, less than 3,000 died in the September 11th attack.

As our children hear about this, they may have questions. Our Child Development Expert, Dr. Robyn Silverman has posted a guide on how to help children cope when a disaster takes place on her blog.
