We are deeply saddened by the tragic and senseless shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, TX. Our hearts go out to the families and all who are impacted.
This tragedy magnifies the importance of ChildBuilders’ mission to promote mental health and prevent abuse by empowering children, parents, and teachers with assertiveness skills, emotional control, empathy, resilience, and the ability to resolve conflict non-violently.⠀
Our Parenting Resources can help you during this tumultuous time.
Our mental health-focused webinars can help you parent a child who has experienced trauma, such as community violence; notice whether your child is experiencing a mental health challenge; and identify warning signs of abuse and child maltreatment. Stay tuned for an updated schedule of live webinars for parents, caregivers, educators, and community. Until then, take advantage of our pre-recorded webinars, listed here.
Our Parent Guide contains a selection of resources for talking to children about violence and traumatic events such as school shootings by the American Psychological Association, ChildMind Institute, and the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.
We encourage you to talk to your principal, school counselor, or members of your school board to bring ChildBuilders’ programs to your schools. Together, we can make our communities safer – one child at a time. ⠀
