Cute.

On a serious not, (well to me), our 6 year old is having a problem with this information.  Apparently, our 10 year old told him we were about to be `nuked' after misunderstand  the newspaper on Thursday morning. First I was a bit irritated with my older boy, but I understand he does not have the maturity to  decipher the complexity of the situation, nor the difference between a reasonable threat to the country.  Anyway...the younger one keeps asking me if we are going to die.  I did my best to explain to him that he is safe and I would tell him if he or we are in danger.  I also assured him that the US is doing their very best to protect us from mean people because that is their job.

Thankfully my 5 year old hasn't really had many questions. I'm still trying to come up with a response for when he does come to me.

That's good.  It's difficult, though.  Back in 2000 I had to explain 9/11 to our children and DH and me were not prepared for such a discussion because we were not sure what to think about it at first.  Where was this going?  All I can say is never lie to the child or dismiss their fear.  Explaining in basic, simple terms seems to help best.  They usually come back with more questions, but reassuring them is what they really want/need to hear.
