Saw this article in the Washington Post this morning- http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/on-parenting/post/how-to-talk-to-kid..."How to talk to kids about Osama bin Laden" . It contains some helpful hints and links to sites that have ideas for parents to use when talking to kids about violence and death.
Just wondering- did anyone here have a problem talking to their kids about 9/11, the war, or bin Laden's death? Did any of this make your kids feel fearful, anxious...? How much do you protect your kids, based on age and maturity, from news about violence and war?
And with bin Laden's death in particular, how have you handled the spiritual ramifications of the death of an evil person, feelings of vengeance, how justice is served...?
