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
