Always be honest with your child when bad things happen

In the aftermath of the theater massacre, kids and teens are bound to have some questions about how something so awful could happen at a place meant for fun.

Doctors say you should always be honest with your kids.

Cinda McDonald, a Child Life Expert in Dallas, says not to sugar coat anything with your children, or they will go off and try to fill in the blanks on their own.

"They know they're children best, and they should listen to their gun instinct on how much they should share with their children," said McDonald.

Parents all over the country Saturday either gave their teens warnings to be careful when heading to the theater or just went along with them.
