Manchester: Parenting in the Aftermath

You’ve heard about Manchester of course. 22 dead as I type, including kids. Kids for God’s sake. At a concert, having fun, then literally – boom.
You may have teared up like I did when you saw the photo of the first victim identified – a sparkly happy photo taken of her with her idol Arianna, the same idol she watched last night. How I hope she enjoyed it.

How does this atrocity affect those of us that bear witness? How does it affect the young children who will likely hear about it – or see images on the news? And how can we help them to deal with that fallout?
