Since it's all over the news day and night it's kind of hard not to talk about it.

About Ebola specifically, no. I see no reason to. however we talk about proper personal care which includes washing hands and guarding against viruses.

Yes, we've discussed it with them, they saw a clip on the news and wanted to know more. We just explained what's going on, reinforced the importance of good hygiene and staying away from sick people.

No. What talk would we be having?

"Hey kids, there is this illness that you're not likely to catch that is killing people in a continent we aren't traveling to any time soon. Two people in the U.S. have it and despite the fact that you need to have close contact with an infected person and you are 1,5, and 7 and not going to Texas ever, I just wanted to needlessly worry you and turn you into a paranoid tin foil hat wearer like all the moms on Cafe Mom that don't understand basic science."

Not in a warning way but in a current event sort of way. 

No reason to worry them over nothing.

I just had that talk with my four year old.

Now she can get back to disappearing herself and playing freeze tag with Kermit the frog.
