Blog: How to Help Our Children Right Now: Kim John Payne's Words of Wisdom

Practical advice on helping children cope with tragic news.

I was going to write a response to the horror of Newtown.  But my drafts left me feeling I was just adding to the din and misery.  Today, the wonderful, practical words of Simplicity Parenting's Kim John Payne showed up in my in box, and I knew I needed to pass them along.

You've probably read a lot by now, and feel saturated and uneasy, but this piece is worth the energy. Thank you to Mr. Payne for making it available.
