Therapist offers tips on how to help kids deal with stress from presidential election
Adults are not the only ones feeling stress and anxiety from the presidential election--so are kids.
Child therapist Sheryl Gonzalez Ziegler says one of the first things that can help kids is to ask them what they know, what they are curious about and what they've heard. Ziegler says kids as young as pre-school can understand concepts about people having different opinions.
"And you can let them know that's what we're doing in an election," says Ziegler. "It comes down to about two people and somebody's going to win and somebody's going to lose."
Ziegler says to help kids process the election you can encourage them to vote on something themselves. She says it's also important to reinforce that in the end everything will be fine.
