  Online Resources for Parents about Disasters and Terrorism
Soon after the terrorist plane crashes in NY and Washington, DC, I went looking for information about how best to talk to my children about the events and the tragedy. My mother, an assistant superintendant in a NY school district affected by the disaster, and my sister, a licensed social worker in DC, also sent recommendations. If you have any online resources to add to this collection or any other web sites you found useful, please let me know.
