Children and fire season brings a whole different outlook on the news around here. We have grandkids and they all know what papaw and the uncles do in the summer. But I know they worry also, so we are very careful not to let them get too much TV fire news. The news show the scariest parts of the fires for dramatic content and for kids that can be very scary, heck, it scares me. Like 9-11, there comes a point where I turn off the news because it is just to much. Seeing the same clips over and over, and little kids think it is happening all over again. Seeing Dawns post about her children started me wondering how do we explain to them? I’m sure it is very similar to the military and their being deployed away from their home base. How do you handle the children
