Overview

Talking to children about terrorism used to be unthinkable. These days however, they have been exposed to the realities of a sometimes hostile world. That doesn't mean that national security has to be a scary subject. In fact, our children are the key to our nation's security and strength because they are the future.

How children define good citizenship will have a significant impact on how they will guide America later. When they learn to be accountable for their actions, respect diversity, and show compassion, they are learning to be good American citizens.

When children practice the tips from HOW KIDS CAN BE GOOD CITIZENS in everyday situations, they serve as good role models for their community and someday, the world.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Mother of five, Ms. Bennett brings a unique perspective to national security by combining the skills she uses at home with those required in her work as a CIA officer. Observing that parenting requires balance, objectivity, and the ability to remain focused on the long-term, Bennett demonstrates the importance of these qualities in securing America in her book NATIONAL SECURITY MOM. Ms Bennett has packed her powerful lessons of citizenship into this children's book to provide parents and teachers a tool for demonstrating civil leadership.

As a Senior Counterterrorism Analyst in the CIA, Gina Bennett authored the earliest warnings of today's terrorism trends, including the 1993 report that foreshadowed the danger of Osama bin Laden. Her analysis was deemed "prescient" and "genius" by major media and senior government officials and has gained recent popularity from the Oscar-nominated film "Zero Dark Thirty," Emmy-winning Showtime series "Homeland," and the HBO Documentary "Manhunt" which catapulted Ms. Bennett into the spotlight as a founder of "The CIA Sisterhood."
