At what age should young children first learn about 9/11?
We don't watch the news in front of the kids, and as far as I know, he's never seen anything about 9/11 or heard about it from anyone else. But he's at an age now where I think it's possible he could "bump into" someone talking about 9/11. I don't want worry him with troubling images and ideas - which he'll then have to live with for the rest of his life like the rest of us do - but I do think he should learn about 9/11 from me first rather than from someone else.
At what age did you tell your young children (who weren't alive for or aware of the events when they occurred) about what happened on 9/11? Did you show them pictures or videos or just talk about it? Any advice for the best ways to approach it?
