It's my responsibility. I don't want others talking with my children about sensitive subjects. I'd rather go about it my own way and I also want it to hear it from me. I DO think its great that schools offer counseling for students after tragedy.

These assholes don't know that I am going to completely trash them on this at the next Emergency Meeting.

We meet with all different disciplines (police, fire, ems, Behavior Health, hospitals, LTC's) preparing and planning for things like this and how to react.

We actually meet at the Sandy Hook firehouse where the kids were being kept once they escaped the building.

This is far from over.
I am not letting this go.

Quoting Just Ames:" *hugs* Although they didn't bring it up today, do you think they will in the near future? Did they say ... [snip!] ... way, I'm sorry she's having such a hard time and I'd definitely hold the school accountable for some counseling for Ash. "

No, they have no plans to address it further.

Quoting Just Ames:" Wow :? I don't agree with that "action" at all. So they have no drills in place for emergency preparation for an intruder or whatever you want to call it? "


I have not heard about any drills, that is a very good point.

I think I may have to call them back :?

absolutely the parents responsibility and then the school should make resources available to assist the parents.

Your right and if I am not mistaken they should have plans on file

I am going to dig much more into this

Definitely dig into it. You'd think they would be hard at work putting together a preparedness plan. I mean, they may still be numb from what happened, but they have a responsibility greater than themselves.

We were told to talk to our kids yesterday. Here's how my class handled it: http://forum.baby-gaga.com/about2405571.html. I haven't received a parent complaint yet. I don't think I will.

thank you.

I was referring to the 6-7 age group rather than older children which would in fact have a better understanding than a first grader.

Oh, ok. Yeah, only the intermediate grades had the discussion. Primary grades continued on as normal.

Both. But more of the parents to start it, then the school to help talk about it an be prepared for anything IMO.



With everything that just happened my kids 10 and 4 are well aware of it down to every last detail. But we watch the news every day as a whole family.



I think its very important for my kids to be aware of what goes on around the world as well as our country and community. Kwim?



So maybe I guess I think its more on the parents then anything else. LOL I changed my opinion the more I thought about it. Lol

I talked to my kids about it myself. The schools did send out an email about it saying they would go over emergency procedures again.



I try not to have the news on when the kids are home. I mean Ill watch the news, but not the on going coverage of whats happened. Kids dont need to know every detail in what happened. They dont need to know that a man shot at 6 and 7 year olds and put at least 3 bullets in them.



Last night my 9 year old asked me why so many kids were killed. I told him because the man had a lot of problems. My 7 year old kinda got scared and asked what if he came to his school and shot his friends. We went ahead and talked a little more, but I just had to reassure them that they are safe.



Colleen Im so sorry that Ash is taking it hard. I think kids are just like us parents and see things as "That could have been us". I hope shes ok. <3

We do "Lockdown" Drills here. We've had four this year so far. They are mandatory in Indiana - all schools do them. I would definitely be concerned if there were none. Although, parents hate that we do them here.
