In the wake of a school shooting like the one that happened at Arapahoe High School Friday, many parents are left wondering how to talk to their kids about such a scary situation.

Jan Isaccs Henry from KidPower says it's important to limit what kids see and hear, because it can seem like it's still happening, even after the incident is over.

It's also important to offer kids lots of reassurance that their schools are taking steps to make sure they stay safe.

There's more information in the above video, and at KidPower's website.
