I am looking for ways to communicate with my young son as to the events that have occurred this week. Has anyone found any good sites on how to talk/deal with my son's feelings?
Please post some links if you have found some. I have found this one and will keep searching.
I edited the link because I found the same info at another link with more extensive coverage

Hi Jamie,
I don't know how old your children are but IMHO the best way to help your kids understand what has happened is to explain that it is the result of people unquestioningly accepting a belief system.
Teach them to think about the world around them, to question all they see, all they hear and to accept nothing blindly as being the "truth" simply because it comes from a perceived authority.
It's not easy, they will question your authority as well
If they are very young the best you can probably do is make them feel secure, to continue your daily life and be honest when they ask you questions about they hear and see on TV or at school. The worst thing is to pretend everything is ok ... children are not stupid... they know something terrible has happened. They are bright, inquisitive and resilient. Give them honest answers and you'll be amazed at what they can figure out all by themselves
I am mighty! And this is a mighty small ad:
