Your child and current news

Current events: Young child reading a newspaper

Discuss the importance and meaning of current news and events with your children, once they start to become aware of the wider world. Encourage them to ask questions about what is happening and do some research together to find out more.

  • Discuss with your child any worries they may have arising out of events they have heard about
  • Share good news stories too – don’t just focus on the bad
  • Search out news articles about areas your child is interested in – space exploration, for example, or a certain country – to nurture their interest

Experiences:

A strong father figure can change society

Having a strong father figure is a hugely powerful factor in a child’s life; in fact, it’s the biggest need that children have in today's society.

Tips:

Help your kids feel special

The way you relate to your child tells them a lot about how you feel about them. Consciously seek to interact with them so that they feel special.
