Therapist Kathy Parker shared a few ideas on keeping children safe from gun violence.

  • Talk to your kids as young as 3-years-old about guns and how to stay safe.
  • Talk with your community, including anywhere our children spend time - friends' parents, babysitters, family members, etc.
  •  Make it a conversation, not a lecture

4 things that preschoolers should know. If they see a gun:

2. Do not touch the gun
3. Leave the area
4. Tell an adult
