What to do if your child is scared of a "new world order?"

    What to do if your child is scared of a "new world order?"

    Each time you read about how bad the economy's going or watch videos of it, there may be comments on them being signs of a "new world order." Now if a child reads them and providing that there are no swear words in all the comments, they'll get scared. Perhaps he or she might hear conversations about it even at school. AT SCHOOL. So how can you soothe a child when he hears or sees such allegations of a "new world order" coming soon?

    How old is your child and why are they reading about the economy on the internet? And why are their peers discussing the economy and the state of the world at school?

    If your child is mature enough to understand news about the economy sit them down and explain the situation to them. They'll understand.

    I was in 6th grade when 9/11 happened. Was I concerned that something like that was going to happen again? No. I was curious about it on the news but I didn't freak out. Keep calm and explain the situation rationally and your children will follow suit. If you play it off as ridiculous (which it is) they'll believe it and stop being scared.

      I don't have kids, but I asked it out of curiosity. But keeping calm is one way to assuage kids' fears. Oh, and I too was in 6th grade in 9/11/2001.

      Kids aren't as interested in politics and the economy as we think they they might be. They only notice when we, as adults, point it out or make a big deal about it.

    I wouldn't smooth over the facts; perhaps them knowing about it is the best thing possible.  I definitely think harsh truth is better than sweet lies.

    Perhaps you should look into the facts more before doing anything else.
