TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)--Traumatic events can be difficult to cope with, but it's important to note that parents can play a role in recognizing the warning signs of PTSD in children early on.

Traumas that can affect teenagers include assault, serious accidents, abuse, community or domestic violence.
