I really disagree with parents who keep their kids from watching the “bad stories” on the news, or even worse, the news in general. I think its so important for kids of any age to hear both the good and the bad. When they’re surrounded by nothing but stories of puppies and rainbows and always happy ever afters, you’re not raising them to have a realistic outlook of the world. Of course there are extreme exceptions, but me personally, I wouldn’t censor any world news from my children. I want them to ask questions. I want them to know that there is bad in the world and yes, It is sad. I think It would teach them just how important it is to be good as well as better highlight those who are and do good.2 notes
