Talking to Kids About Violence:
Resources for Media

Violence is overwhelming to young children, especially those too young to distinguish the real from the fictional. Parents of children of all ages should be prepared to comfort their children, talk about their feelings and answer the “whys” as best they can.

Several Parenting Press authors (see below) are willing to be interviewed to respond to the events of September 11, 2001, and offer advice to parents and children in dealing with violence.

To contact any of the Parenting Press authors, for more information on how to talk to kids about violence or for a review copy of a Parenting Press book, please contact the Publicity Coordinator at (800) 992-6657, Ext. 101 or e-mail our marketing department.

The Fall 2001 issue of Parenting Press’s quarterly parent education newsletter, PEP Talk, featured how-to advice in “Talking to kids about violence.” To request a free copy of this article and for subscription information, please e-mail our marketing department and write “PEP Talk, 9-11” in the subject line, or call (800) 992-6657, Ext. 101.
