My three year old ds got a very short glimpse of the devestation in Japan this mornin. Wonder Pets timed out when I was in the bathroom and I guess my husband was watching BBC last night. He was very very freaked over this in what could have been no more than a minute of footage. I tried to just be calm and tell him it was far away and that people were already building new houses. Has anyone else had to explain any of this, any good advice on what I should say if he brings it up again?
We have been watching it on the news and my kids have seen it to.. they are 4 & 6. We are not hiding it from them. I am explaining the science of it all to them, in basic terms as they love to watch discovery channel type shows. I am tempering the human side of it as I don't think they can grasp the concept of over 10,000 dead/missing. Tragedy like this happens, so I am not hiding it from them, but I am trying to explain it in terms they understand, and helping them work thru the information as needed. You just have to break it down into smaller pieces of information and put it into term they understand. Answer his questions best you can, but DON"T lie to them.... that can come back and bit you in the a$$ hard someday!!
