This month I’m blogging from the Philippines on behalf of Love146. If you’ve missed any posts in this series, head here to catch up:
- Education that nurtures, education that heals
- The abolition of child trafficking and exploitation. Nothing less.
Over the past two weeks as I’ve written about modern-day slavery and our family’s personal mission to abolish it, a few readers have asked questions like these:
“How much do your kids actually know about your husband’s work with Love146?”
“How do I talk to my children about an issue as dark and complex as this one?”
This post addresses those questions, providing ideas about how to approach this topic with your own family. I’ve categorized the thoughts below by age range, but please keep in mind that our kids vary drastically in their development.
Some will be ready for information at an early age, some late. I tend to veer toward the better late than early philosophy–especially when I’m giving advice to so many of you–but you are the expert in your home so adjust as needed.
