Camila Ávila's curator insight, October 31, 9:15 PM
Knowing how complicated the news are around the world nowdays, there are things that need to be explained to children which may affect them direct or indirectly. Likewise, some parents do not like to talk about those things with them, it may be because of the ignorance of some, or because they think that it is not necesary for the children to know those things.
I find this resource very useful because many times teachers have to fill in the gaps that the parents leave in children. Most of the times, this gaps need to be filled with tact and in a way that children can process it easily andin the right way..
Thank you TKN for creating such useful tool.
