It’s no secret what’s going on here in St. Louis. Tonight will be marked as one of those “where were you?” nights.
Well, I was giving my babies a bath. I was watching them play blissfully unaware of what was occurring in real time and it reminded me of our role as parents, especially in a time like this.
This is scary stuff. This is hard for anyone to comprehend let alone children. Our kids deserve to have a childhood and as parents, as tough as it is, one of our role is to be very mindful of what they read, what the see, what they hear.
Be aware. If you think it’s right have the conversation, do so in a way that educates. If they are too young, like mine are, do your best to keep their childhood just that…childhood.
