Let's Discuss Explaining Horrific Events to Your Special Kid

This last week we witnessed and deeply felt the horrific events that unfolded in Boston and in Texas.  How do these things effect your special person? How do you explain them or ... do you? 

We all know that our special family members are very sensitive to the feeling and conditions of the world around them.
Do you think that these things effect them more than we know or understand? Do you think that they should be allowed to view the TV and all the news stories that are so disturbing?
Do we attempt to protect them or enlighten them?
How do you react in front of them???
Call me, login in to the chat room ... tell me.
