The violent assault on our nation’s capital on January 6th has shocked and angered us and has left us with so many questions. In times like these, young children look to us for guidance and to help them understand such troubling events. It can be daunting to talk with your young children about civil unrest, racial injustice, and violence, but you don’t have to go it alone.
Boston Children’s Museum staff have compiled a list of resources from organizations doing excellent work to guide parents, caregivers, educators, and children through this difficult time. We have also included resources that will help you connect with your child through play, one of the very best ways to comfort and support your child.
