Responding to the devastating school shooting in Newtown, Conn., KidsHealth, the comprehensive library of health information for children, has added to and enhanced related articles in the content library that help address some of the concerns families may have. The KidsHealth library can be found on the Willis-Knighton Health System website at wkhs.com.
Some of the helpful articles include: How to Talk to Your Child About the News (for parents); School Violence and the News (for parents); Should You Worry About School Violence? (for teens); Someone at School has a Weapon. What Should I do? (for teens) and Gun Safety (for kids).
KidsHealth features thousands of medically reviewed articles, animations, features, and news written to be age-appropriate for three distinct audiences: parents, kids, and teens. Willis-Knighton has partnered with Kids Health, a nonprofit organization devoted exclusively to children’s health, to provide this service to families in our area.
