About the bomb in Manchester

How terrible is the news from Manchester? I can't believe anyone would want to kill those poor kids.\r\n\r\nMy son heard the news on the radio in the car and he asked me about it. I couldn't help but break down crying while trying to explain it to him. He's the same age as one of the wee girls who died.\r\n\r\nHow do you explain to an 8 year old that another 8 year got targetted and killed? It's terrible. \r\n\r\nI'd love to hear from other about how they cope with this and also how we stop ourselves from loosing hope with the world.\r\n\r\n:(

Pattie it's awful news. just absolutely awful. So heart breaking. I personally haven't had the questions being asked, yet, by my 7 year old. We basically dont listen to the news while she is around as unfortunately there's been so much madness going on in the world and i want to protect her from it. If I could wrap her up in cotton wool and shield her from it all I would. I know its not the best way to deal with things but I'd rather she didnt know and just got on with playing. I imagine if she hears from friends in school or at grandparents house from the radio and starts to ask questions, I will have to be honest with her and have a little chat to reassure her, but to be honest I dont know if I'd do much of a good job at it seeing as Im not too reassured myself. My heart breaks every time there's killing of innocent civilians anywhere in the world. I have put your thread up on facebook asking for anyone who has had this conversation with their child to come over and offer some advice. Hopefully they come along and offer help. I found this article on CBeebies, which might help. Its from Newsround. http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/13865002
