“STEP UP, TAKE ACTION” – When Does a Child Need Help?
Dear Parents and Teachers of Elementary School Children,
The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, made clear the urgent need to protect our children and to reduce violence
in our communities. Many “shooters,” who are described after the tragedies they cause, are isolated individuals who have had emotional problems for
years. But, they never received the attention and help they needed early enough to prevent them from putting themselves or others in danger.
