When disturbing stories such as school violence are in the news media, many parents pay particularly close attention to this issue among their children.

"Parents taking the opportunity to strengthen their children's resilience, especially during such a difficult time, is a way for parents to feel more confident in promoting their kids' mental health," said Sharidon Wolz, vice president of programs at Beech Acres Parenting Center. "We want to help parents by serving as a resource for them on that path."
