How Do You Talk to Your Kids About the Situation in Egypt?
Filed under: In The News
The Washington Post published a helpful article in a easy to follow Q&A format. For example, the beginning of the answer to the question, "Why are people in Egypt so upset?" is "Mubarak has been Egypt's president for almost 30 years." (OK, that seems like a good reason for frustration.) Another interesting angle, especially for teens, is this story from September of last year, when Egyptian reformer Mohamed ElBaradei said that his enemies published his daughter's Facebook photos.
We wondered what ParentDish readers were experiencing at home with their own offspring. Are your children interested in the Egypt situation? How are you talking to them about it?
