As mothers, our hearts ache for the unimaginable grief and loss of the families in Newtown, Connecticut……feelings of shock, sadness, and sympathy.  Anxiety & intense fear also creep in…disturbing moments of gratitude for our own children.   We may tune into the news for more and more information yet feel more confused than ever….so many unanswered questions.

Mainly I just feel so very sad for the families who have experienced this tragedy.

Resources on talking to kids about tragedy are contained in the following Post by Dr. Brene Brown, one of my favorite authors and speakers.

Newtown, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
