CT... are you talking to your kids and what to say...
Sun, 12-16-2012 - 2:34pm

For me, my DD is 6 1/2 yo and in full day kindergarten.  We are not going to discuss the CT events with her....  she won't hear it on the news, as we don't allow the news on  when the kids are around because it's just depressing.  My DD has been very clingy the last few months and I'm afraid that if I tell her about what happened, she will degress.... plus, there's only a few days of school left.  I'll let her teacher know, so if something is said and she is scared that they know.  I know that others will discuss it with their children and I thought this was a great article:
