"In times of community or world-wide crisis, 
it's easy to assume that young children 
don't know what's going on. 
But one thing's for sure -- 
children are very sensitive 
to how their parents feel. 
They're keenly aware of the expressions 
on their parents' faces 
and the tone of their voices. 
Children can sense when 
their parents are really worried, 
whether they're watching the news 
or talking about it with others. 
No matter what children know about a “crisis,” 
it’s especially scary for children to realize 
that their parents are scared."
