On the afternoon of February 14, 2018, a mass shooting occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people were killed and fifteen more were taken to hospitals, making it one of the world’s deadliest school massacres in history.

In this show my guest and I will give you tips on what to look for and how you can talk to your children, the psychological impact of the shooting, tips for dealing with media exposure and much more.
