Discussing Emergency Situations with your Children

Without a doubt children are extremely inquisitive, observant and perceptive; they notice things, often without us even being aware of them watching or listening.   It’s great that they absorb enormous amounts of information so easily but it can also be detrimental to their peace of mind if they see or hear things which are frightening or difficult to understand. Take the TV news for example; your child could a
