Parents around the nation will be hugging their children a little bit tighter tonight after the tragedy in Connecticut.

Parents may wonder how to explain the terrible act to their children. University of Kentucky Psychologist Ginny Sprang said parents need to have a conversation with their children. Sprang said kids need to know that it's normal to be sad, scared, or confused. She said sometimes children will not let you know that they are upset, so you should look for non-verbal cues such as waking up in the middle of the night, and having accidents.

Sprang said this is also a good opportunity to make sure children know what to do if this were to happen at their school.
