Growing up, I had no fear.
I don’t remember hearing about countries going to war with each other, unless it was in a history lesson and vary rarely do I remember reading much in the news about children being abducted/killed or attacked.
Yet now in the news every day you hear of something awful happening around the world.
This worries me.
It worries me what we are bring our children into.
Everyday we teach our children right from wrong. Teach them to be kind to each other and not to hurt anyone.
Then when you turn the news on you find out that 1000’s of people are dying in wars around the world, terrorists are hijacking planes or shooting them out of the sky killing innocent people and lots more are being hurt by people they hold near and dear.
How do you give children the space to breath and grow without letting them come to any harm? At the minute I can’t even imagine Kayleigh and Ethan ever even walking home from school on there own.
But more than that, how can we tell our children one thing whilst they watch another thing unravel all over the world?
Being a parent is hard. there is a fine line between protecting our children from what goes on in the world and letting them learn and grow and in the world we live in I just hope they mange to find the positive’s in the world rather than all the negatives that are portrayed on the news every day.
