September 11, 2001 — I remember it VERY WELL. I think most adults do. A friend called and said to turn on the TV. I did. I didn’t leave it for hours. My boys were 4 and 7. They were largely oblivious. I think school was cut short that day. I don’t remember. They didn’t understand or ask many questions. #DadChat this Thursday — September 11, 2014 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET — will talk about HOW to discuss/explain such huge world tragedies and EVIL to our children. It is NOT easy to do. We should NOT protect them fully from the world’s travails but age appropriate talk is important.
