How to Talk To Your Preschooler About A Crisis

With the recent news, it’s almost impossible to avoid all of the negativity going on in the world. 

I’ve had a few moms reach out to me recently asking how I’m talking to our preschooler about the crisis happening in the world and below I’ll outline how we’re handling it.

Of course, these tips won’t be right for everyone. I encourage you to be thoughtful about how you handle these situations with your children. You know your child best!

Divert Their Attention 

I don’t know about your preschooler, but ours has this innate ability to not let things go.
