The title may be Scary News, but the content is anything but. Lorna Knox writes with joy and compassion about the reality all parents face: our children are bombarded with information from so many sources, much of it horrifying and unnecessary, and they don't have the ability to process it like we do. The suggestions she offers show how to avoid the unnecessary information, deal with the necessary information, and add beauty, joy and goodness to children's lives in a way that makes these qualities the real focus of their lives. That's why this book is so encouraging: the suggestions are simple but effective (for example: add silence to your child's day,) and the focus stays on joy in the lives of ourselves and our children. The goal is for children to learn how to deal with reality in a mature and compassionate way. With so many insightful observations and practical suggestions, this book is a treasure trove for parents who intuitively understand that this world doesn't really pay enough attention to children's deepest needs (or to ours either!) My copy is thoroughly underlined. I highly recommend it.
