It may seem like you were just explaining the Ariana Grande mass shooting to your children, but discussing the topic does not become any easier. It's almost impossible to shield your kids from these types of occurrences, and chances are, they will want to talk to you about it. What should you say? And how do you say it? Being both informative and supportive is important, but don't give your kids too much information. If they want to know more -- they'll ask.
