Michelle Obama offers tips on talking to kids post Newtown

First Lady Michelle Obama has penned an open letter to parents, suggesting ways of talking to children about last week's shooting in Connecticut that left 20 first-graders and six educators dead in an elementary school.

"We know that all across the country, it's not just adults who are asking questions right now – our children are looking for answers as well," she wrote "As parents, all of us can take the time to hold our kids close and talk with them about the things that truly matter: our love for them, the importance of extending that love to those affected by this tragedy, and how that love truly defines our great American community."
