Marathon lesson: Kids need teachers who can help ease effects of trauma

RE “STILL hearing the echoes” (Page A1, Aug. 11): Regarding the “inner aftershocks” of the Boston Marathon bombings, we are long past due for all teachers to be provided training on working with post-traumatic children.

Teachers spend more time with our children than we do many days. We all need to recognize that illogical or aberrant behavior can be a sign of stress and a cry for help, not a time for punishment or shame of the child, who often has no words for such big feelings.
