Au Pair » How to Talk to Kids About Tragedy Without Saying Too Much:

As a result, it’s very important that parents have an idea of how to approach the subject with their children to avoid anxiety and stress that can deeply affect the way a child views the world. Striking a balance between providing kids with the answers and explanations they’re seeking without giving them more information than they can comfortably handle isn’t always easy, but doing so can help your child grasp at least the basic facts without inspiring deep-seated fears or anxiety issues."
