Want to teach your children about peace & equality?

Then teach your children about Martin Luther King Jr.!

Today marks the 50 year anniversary of that very speech, that was such am imperative part of history.

It is important that children know about those brave individuals who paved the way for others, & changed history, like Martin Luther King Jr. did!

After discussing with your children importance of Martin Luther King Jr., a fun activity is to have them draw what their dream is, or to write it down.

You’d be surprised how children as young as five understand the meaning of a dream, equality, & peace!

Take it from a Mom Whose dream is that all children learn the importance of that very speech that changed the world!

My thoughts & prayers are with all those who lost their lives, as well as all of those who were affected by today’s tragic event in Boston!

There are no words for today’s tragic event, but prayers instead.

It is unfortunate that children witnessed these horrifying images & stories, which can be traumatizing.

As parents we need to be there for our children, to comfort & make them feel safe.

My opinion, is that it is not necessary to bring tragic events up to small children.

It is too much for them to handle, unless they bring it up to you I feel.

My husband & I make it a point to never watch the news in front of our children.

Not to shelter them, so they don’t worry about things that they are unable to comprehend.

Sometimes there is no rationalizing tragic events, so just be there to listen & to nurture your children.

God bless all of those lives that were lost, those who are injured, & thank you to all those civilians who ran to donate blood, & help those in need.

Take it from a Mom Who is saddened today! 🙁
