hello world. my name is Ryan Alexander Boyles. often, it's pronounced the RAB. i'm into declarative living. i am a connector. this is my life-stream / tumblr / blog. call it what you will. find my sxsw posts. any questions, ask me anything! btw, here is a standard disclaimer.
So far, I’ve found advice from Mr. Rogers and Sesame Street. Any child psychologists reading today? Can you point me towards some other (possibly better) sources? Email me here: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will collect the best resources and post here.
step 1: don’t call them “massacres” unless your children are of an age to comprehend the meaning of that word and in context with anything outside of video games. just my opinion. i’m a father of two boys, age 10 and 12.
step 2: first ask what they heard and from who/where. my kids had already heard about this before they got off the school bus today. often times kids are exposed to something like this without the parent being in the loop from the start to, again, establish context for the conversation.
i do agree with the need for support. looking forward to the resource list, Jason.
