Talking to Children About War (2023)

Barnardos. (2023). Talking to Children About War.
Once again news of conflict across the world is dominating headlines, social media platforms and conversations across the country. Many children are likely to have been exposed to information about violence. Children do not always talk about what is worrying them but they may be trying to make sense of this information by themselves and, in the absence of factual information, imagining situations to be far worse than they are. Every child is different and while some might be scared, others may not be worried at all.
