Unfortunately there has been another terrorist attack, so I have collected some links to advice for talking to children. Hope they are useful.

Guardian’s tips for teachers

Advice from BBC Newsround

Sage advice from the excellent Jane Evans

My sister-in-law Dr Ann Alston from UWE recommends A boy called Christmas by Matt Haig.

‘It’s brilliant and has a fabulous section  in it about how a community is transformed after an act of terror (the kidnapping of a child elf). It is just this one act that gives politicians the freedom to create new laws that will result in an unhappy and less free community… I’ve alluded to it several times when discussing the reaction to terror with Soph (her daughter, aged 8). The reaction to terror is almost more important than the terror itself, I think!’

Stay Safe.
