Today we learned about the tragic death of a student at Branson High School, Kwentyn Wiggins. Our hearts go out in sympathy to his family and friends, as well as the entire Branson School community.
Please take time to talk to your teens and ask them what they know about this. Reinforce safety and care when driving, and be there for them if they are grieving or feeling sad about this news.
An excellent resource for parents helping children deal with grief and bereavement is this site: Dougy Center, The National Center for Grieving Children and Families
We also want you to remember that if your child is having a difficult time with grief or sadness around the loss of a friend, family member or loved one, please call and talk to us - we have more resources and we can help.
