September 11th brings to mind so many images for us all. Some remember the buildings burning. Others think of the firefighters. Myself, I remember sitting in the family room with three pre-schoolers who were shocked that I let them watch Nick Jr. all morning long. While they enjoyed this un-heard of luxury, I was glued to the computer monitor with one ear bud to protect them from the violent images of the day.
In the long run, it didn’t work. Each of those young boys have grown into young men with their own remembrance of that day.
When talking to children about September 11th, you must take their age into account.
