Lots of hugs, kisses and listening.

In light of the recent tragedy in Boston, I'm going to use the hearth today to try and give you a little smile and then some advice on how to help your kids cope with what happened.

First thing's first...this is what's happening at the hearth as we speak...

Yeah, Ken and Prince are just taking a cruise...in the buff.  I would like to say these dolls had clothes when we bought them...Barbie's gonna be pissed.

I hope those seats aren't vinyl.

What about our kids and the tragedy in Boston...

Kids are going to see the images and hear the audio from Boston.  It's a topic that you need to discuss with them because even though they are little, they may be scared and worried.  Reassure them the best you can that this is something that shouldn't ever happen to them, but that bad things do happen and that there are bad people out there.  Remind them that this is why we have the Police and Fire Department and all of our emergency responders.  Explain to them that there are rules in place at their schools designed to help keep them safe.  And of course, be there to give them lots of hugs and kisses and just listen to their concerns.

Thanks for reading.
