Mr. Rogers on helping kids deal with tragic news events

posted by Jason Kottke   Dec 14, 2012

Mr Rogers’ advice on how to talk to children about tragic news events is worth a read for parents and, well, everyone really.

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.
