If you have small children at home, or even not so small ones,
TURN OFF YOUR TELEVISION!
And...radio if children are present. Listening as it happens will not prevent, change or affect the eventual outcome. Catch up with the news (if you feel the need) after the kids go to sleep!
Young children cannot differentiate from a bombing thousands of miles away and next door. Young children cannot tell the difference between what happens "there" and what happens "here". This is not about sheltering or hiding children from the "real world". This is about being real about what children understand and don't understand. This is about recognizing that secondary trauma with real psychological implications for the short and long term, can occur when people (especially children) witness traumatic events--even if it's "merely" televised.
If by chance your child does witness events beyond their ability to comprehend...the PBS website for talking about news with children is helpful.
