How should we handle disturbing news reports in relation to our children?

Our children will return to their schools. Eventually, they will hear about the deaths of those teachers and children. What will we say and how will we handle their questions? The Awake magazine, October 2012, page 19 stated, "Based on the age, maturity, and emotional makeup of your children, consider setting limits on the amount of exposure they have to the news. Therefore, be alert to any signs of fear or anxiety that your children may display."

    When you put it that way duffsmom that makes sense. That's why I love this site cause you get a different perspective that can change your way of thinking.

    Hi ReneeDC1979,

    Thanks for your response but I am not sure you read the answer correctly. The information given from the Awake magazine never said that we should hide the information but that we should consider their age, maturity and interest.
