When scary news events like mass shootings and terror attacks happen, what should parents tell their kids? In a world where news is everywhere, how do you help them understand the situation without scaring them. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Susan Stiffelman, a family therapist and best-selling author about how and what to tell your kids about what's going on in the world. Stiffelman also delivers weekly parenting advice as Huffington Post's “Parent Coach.”
