Moms Talk: Teaching Kids About 9/11
Do you leave it to the schools, or do you take it upon yourself to teach your children about 9/11?
Today's Moms Talk question is multi-faceted.
We want to know if you teach your kids about Sept. 11. If you do, how do you explain it to them? And what lessons do you want your kids to learn from the 9/11 attacks and their aftermath?
The second part of the discussion revolves around the topic of 9/11 in schools. Do you leave it up to the schools to teach your kids about it? If so, what kinds of activities or lesson plans have you seen them working on?
If any teachers out there want to join in the discussion today and let us know how you handle 9/11 in schools — whether you teach in grade school or college level — we'd love to hear from you, too.
