Children and the News: Coping with Terrorism, War and Everyday Violence


The fifth in a series of fact sheets on topics related to children, media and health pulls together the most relevant research that has been conducted about the impact of news on children, in times of war and in times of relative peace. The fact sheet explores how children reacted to televised accounts of the terrorist attacks of 9/11, as well as the Oklahoma City bombing, and the 1991 Persian Gulf War. It also includes guidelines for parents on helping children cope with news coverage of traumatic events.
