The News Scared My Child Yesterday, What Do You Tell A Kid About Terrorism? – Daily Dilemma
Here is Today’s Daily Dilemma:
I listen to you guys every day and I value what you (and the listeners) have to say, so here’s my dilemma. I bet I’m not alone on this one.
Yesterday afternoon when my 8 year old came home from school, I put the TV on for him so he could watch his cartoons. Or at least I thought.
When I came back into the room I noticed he had unfortunately channel surfed. He had it on CNN and was sitting there with a very uncomfortable ,almost shocked look on his face.
I said -what’s wrong, honey? (as if I couldn’t figure it out). He said – “mom -Why did this happen? And do they keep talking about terrorists? I’m scared, mom. Aren’t you scared that it could happen here?
Guys, this really isn’t the first time he’s become inquisitive about news events. What do you say to YOUR kids – especially when sometimes you are as apprehensive as they are?
The “Daily Dilemma” on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone’s problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don’t have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can’t agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we’d love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
