I don’t know whether I should tell The Kids. Would you?
I usually talk to them about current events but I don’t want them to be scared of going out or to be aware of so much craziness in the world. (And it is craziness. These people may talk about religion and even think they are doing these things in the name of Allah- they are not. But that’s another post for another day.)
Back to whether I should tell The Kids. Don’t get me wrong, they aren’t in a fairytale bubble where we burst into song every five minutes but there is a difference between helping them to be aware of whats going on and giving them all the details of all the horrible events.
Can you imagine if I told them every single time somewhere was bombed?
I am scared enough when the security warning level goes up and B is working in the City or Canary Wharf. I defintely do not want The Kids to be afraid of that.
Would you tell them?
