They're young, so it wasn't difficult to keep them away from channels that carry the news, but tomorrow is a new day. They'll hear about it and see what happened somewhere, of that I'm sure. Since my 10-year old is particularly adept at "accidentally" overhearing adult conversations, I thought it wise to think about my response to the questions that will come in the coming days.
Here's what I came up with. It's simple and who knows whether parts of it will be effective. Remember, it's just my thoughts of how to approach the subject with my children.
I'd like to hear your ideas. Really, they could help us all.
