College Students Struggle with Israel-Hamas Conflict on Campus #

Many college students are grappling with the Israel-Hamas war, which has influenced their campus experience. This has led to division among their peers, disruptions to academics, and concerns about potential violence. Parents of these students are also feeling stressed and worried about their well-being. Clinical experts suggest that parents should maintain open communication with their children, listening to their thoughts and feelings without trying to control their actions. Families can provide emotional support by being there for their children, reminding them of available resources, and encouraging them to seek help if needed. It’s important for parents to respect their children’s individual identities and beliefs while maintaining a close relationship. Additionally, parents should take care of their own mental health during this challenging time.
