10th Anniversary of September 11, 2001
NASP offers the brief information below to support parents, educators, and other caregivers helping children understand the many facets of the 10th Anniversary of September 11, 2001.
It is important to remember those who died, honor those who keep the country safe, and reflect on the country’s resilience. Some children and adolescents may experience or re-experience strong feelings related to the attacks because of their personal circumstances. Adults can help them process their reactions in a healthy way.
We can also take this opportunity to foster children’s resilience and coping skills, and to help them see themselves as a positive force in their world, despite adversity.
