    It wasn’t the Jews, Christians, Buddhists.

    Geez, Lamont, man up. This is part of what you signed up for when you became a father.

    How old is the kid? Four? Aside from the fact that the question probably would come from a child that young, even if it did, you have to answer in an age appropriate manner. That doesn’t mean lie, only that the younger the kid, the less detail they can take in. At his age, about the most he could digest is, “There was a big boom, and a lot of people got hurt.” No need to go beyond that at this stage. On the other hand, Lemont is dodging altogether, making it more drawn out and frustrating than if he just answered.

    By the speed you’re narrating i’ll say you get there in five to ten minutes.

    “Boston,” a new novel by James A. Michener.

    It IS like Michner, isn’ t it?
    ,
    Lemont thinks he needs to give the full background to explain. I suspect Darrin is getting across the fact that you don’t need to do that.

    ?
    Not everything needs to be put in historical perspective, especially not for an overview

    Even after having to explain Newtown to my 7yr old, the Boston incident was still hard. Darrin is spot on with this one. It is excruciating to try and explain crazy to a child when all you want to do is protect them.

    Yes, there were 2 mean people who made a big boom and hurt some other people. But, there were even more people who helped. Look for those good helpers. You’ll always find them. As long as they are there, the bad people can never win in the end.

    Lamont’s telling him what happened, Wikipedia-style.

    Children are surrounded by crazies and irrational people. They understand that part.

    Yes, 2 Muslims planted bombs.
    But not ALL Muslims planted bombs.
    And, I’ll be honest, I’ve some problems with certain aspects of the Muslim religion (at least the way some practice it), but I never think it’s fair to blame an entire group for the actions of a few.

    @Saucy1121

    I would appreciate it if someone explained it to ME that way.
    Well done.
