I told my oldest kids about the rescued Ohio women. I told them never to take rides from anyone and never to walk over to a car or van while waiting for the school bus. I told them the girls had been kidnapped and held for 10 years. I told them to know I would never send anyone to get them that they didn’t know and to always stay with a group.
My 10-year-old son told me to PLEASE stop telling him about news events that they were upsetting to him.
So I am wondering did you tell your kids (what age?) about the kidnapped girls/women? Was it a teachable moment to never get in the car with a stranger or was it just too horrific to share with them? How much detail did you share if you told them about the case? When is something just too awful to tell them? What news events have you shared with them this year and what events haven’t you shared?
