Apologies if this has already been discussed but I couldn't find anything and I'd really like peoples opinions on this.
My children have no idea about yesterdays primary school massacre and I'm of the opinion that DD (who's 6) probably wouldn't handle it that well. She's quite a sensitive little soul but I also like to protect her innocence from the bad stuff in the world for as long as a can IYKWIM.
So tomorrow she has a school assembly where the Principal, I'm fairly sure, will bring it up. He usually likes to discuss current events in the world.
Would you sit DD down and discuss it with her prior to the assembly in case he does bring it up? Or shall I just hope he realises that perhaps 5 and 6 year olds are too young to be exposed to these things?
