When Tragedy Hits: What Do We Tell Our Kids

Whenever a tragedy happens such as the tornados that hit our community on Friday, do you feel at a loss of what to tell our children? My first instinct was always to protect and hide such things from them when they were young and didn’t need to know about it. It is scary. A storm comes in and can take away everything – including people you love in a few minutes.

On the other hand, it is a good time to teach your children about faith. Also, there will be many ways to teach them about giving of either things or time. We will find out many ways we can help in the coming weeks. We will try to post things that families can do together. If you have some ideas, please also post them as comments.

And, read this – a coach who was in Henryville High School in Henryville, IN, when the tornado hit tells about his thoughts about his family during this terrible time.
