Protecting Your Children From Alarming Coverage

Amid the protests in Washington D.C., parents should strive to protect their children from viewing the chaos. Dr. Laurel Williams, associate professor in the Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Baylor College of Medicine, offers tips for parents:

  • Limit social media
  • Limit news coverage
  • Watch news together (if a child is interested or worried). Ask what they heard and learned, or what they are concerned about. Then, help provide them with facts to address their questions.
  • Do activities that reflect your values as a family to help counteract feelings of helplessness
  • Keep to your routine
  • Be kind and pass kindness along
