What did you tell your children about war?
The question involves your political views, concern about how much information your children can handle, your hope for the future, and whether or not you believe some topics are best avoided. This is a question I'm trying to get a better understanding about for my next book, and I'm interested in your thoughts and experiences.
Does it matter what we say to children about war? Does it shape how they will think as adults; can what we say even influence the future of war? Should children be protected from any discussions about war, or is there certain information they're able to handle?
I'm especially interested in hearing from you if you're willing to be quoted, but I'm interested in your view on this topic whether you're willing to be quoted or not. You're welcome to respond here or to Kasten3@yahoo.com
