Provide physical and verbal reassurance to your child.  Tell them that they are safe.

Let them talk about their feelings and validate those feelings, then again, let them know that they are safe. 

Sometimes children regress in their skills momentarily—be patient and supportive.

Develop a family safety plan for emergencies.  Practice your plan with your child.  This can help your child to feel empowered.

Talk to children about all the good people who helped keep others safe—bystanders, police, others. 

Keep the conversation open, and monitor your child’s access to TV, or watch it together so you can talk about what comes up.
