Good Sites for Introducing Children to World Current Events and Critical Thinking

Good News and Current Events Web Sites for Young Children

Children who don't pay much attention to current events may feel blindsided when asked questions about current events.

It is really confusing to find simple news for children out there on the net.

Most sites claiming to provide news for children seem more interested in offering music, cd's and entertainment, selling subscriptions and advertising.

CNN is about the best for clarity as to easily locating most current headline news.

Sit with your child and introduce him or her to cnn.com headline news, or the news media of your preference.

Make it a habit to spend 5 to 10 minutes per day together reviewing the current news headlines.
