I am so very sorry for theI am so very sorry for the painful loss of your friend and her daughter... and the lasting impact that act has had for your son. Our older kids did catch a bit on the news, but we have since been limiting. We did discuss it briefly as a family as we prayed for the victims, their families, and more. Our younger ones asked questions -- some tough ones to process. We answered as best we could honestly while trying not to overwhelm. I think this will be an ongoing process. Being a parent is difficult. We want to be able to give our children promises that nothing bad will ever happen to them... and more so we want to make it be true.

My oldest is 6, and in theMy oldest is 6, and in the first grade. I keep looking at the pictures of these beautiful faces, that remind me of my son, and my heart just breaks. We have chosen to not expose our kids to what happened. We have kept the tv off, and dont discuss what is going on in front of them. Our kids are 6, 3, 2, and 6 weeks old. They really arent old enough to process it. In 2009 a friend of ours, and her daughter, were murdered. Our oldest still has a fear of a man with a gun hurting us. We dont want to make that fear worse, and have him not want to go to school or worry more than he already does.bbq
