Talking to Children About Disasters
Who can forget the Asian tsunami of 2004 which was followed by mudslides in Guatemala, earthquakes in Pakistan, and hurricanes in the southern U.S. How do parents explain such devastating tragedies to their children? Kids will come up with all sorts of questions in this regard about the world and about God. This pamphlet covers some of the basics of such discussions and offers parents, teachers, and counsellors guidelines for helping children deal with the unknown and with their fears. It will also help parents deepen their own faith.
