To follow up with your child, you might want to tell them how the tragic incident made you feel. Where you were when you found out. And how our country is a safe place today.
Due to the US ambassador being killed in Libia, our flag was at half mast again today, and of course our inquisitive Kinders wanted to know what bad thing happened in our world this time! So we briefly discussed this as well.
Keep an eye out for any flags at half mast when with your child. It is important for them to realize the significance of, and be inquisitive about our country.
