S4E6 - No shortage of questions: Talking with your child about scary news and world events

In the last few years, we have had no shortage of disturbing news and big, scary world events, be it pandemics, social injustices, wars, climate change issues like wildfires, floods, and more.  

In this minisode, Bryn and Char bring questions from BC parents and caregivers to Dr. Ashley Miller, child psychiatrist and family therapist. They dig into questions including: How can I talk to my child about disturbing news and scary events without inciting worry or fear? How much information should I share when I talk with my kids about scary news, how honest should I be? Are there skills I can teach my child to help manage the stress or worry they might feel when they hear or talk about scary news? And much more!
