“A lot of the time when there is an event like this, we feel that it is our responsibility to shelter our kids and to not expose them to what is going on, and that is a mistake,” said Dr. Rita Burke, a USC professor who specializes in childhood trauma and public health.
Burke says it`s a great opportunity to teach kids about empathy.
“If we as parents make a huge deal about how horrible it is that we can’t go trick or treating this year, how horrible, kids are going to take that message away,” Burke said.
Instead, brainstorm new family traditions with your kids and have fun!
