Children see the news and hear the news and are exposed to the ‘bad’ stuff. Parents need to turn of the news when kids are around and turn off the radio. There are good things that happen in the world and I believe there are more good people in the world than bad people. Our kids need to hear positive messages, otherwise they will grow up scared. Definitely teach children stranger danger and protective behaviours, this is important, but children need to also know about the good in the world.
