Kelly Ripa On Talking To Your Kids About The Newtown Tragedy (VIDEO)

How should you approach the subject of the the Newtown tragedy with your children? When Kelly Ripa joined me on Mondays With Marlo, she told me that she followed the guidelines of the literature that was distributed by her children's schools, which instructed parents to tell the kids that they would be safe at school, and that this was a very rare occurrence. Kelly stressed that children need to feel safe in their homes and in their schools, so it's important to answer their questions and address their concerns.

And for a look back at Kelly's eventful year:
