As parents, we struggle to explain the unexplainable to our children. You'll find help within our article: Explaining World Tragedy to Children. Those wanting to prepare will find "When disaster strikes -- surviving tragedy with small children" useful.

To any of our members living in Oklahoma or perhaps with loved ones in the area please know our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We encourage those reading to leave a note of support and encouragement for those impacted.
