Parents and Educators Grapple With 9-11

By  | 

Parents and educators are grappling with the challenge of talking to their children about the terrorist attacks of 9-11.

For some elementary schools in East Lansing, the message focuses on respect. Schools talk about respect for the flag, respect for our country, and respect for our freedoms.

Experts say parents should recognize, acknowledge, and calm their children's feelings and be there tomorrow, to answer any questions kids might have.

Educators and experts agree, children should be censored as much as possible from the images on TV of 9-11.
