Children Growing

I love Tim Lott's column in the Guardian and agree with his philosophy. This week he suggests that telling children to 'cheer up,' when they are sad, is counter-productive. Instead, accept their feelings and give them the love and space to start cheering themselves up, in their own time.
I read another great quote in this article about trying to educate kids of dangers online. If they are curious, don't say, 'Ask me when you're older,' as they can Google everything anyway. I hope I can answer 'tricky' questions, as the kids grow up.
Yesterday, Hugh said, (apropos of nothing),

 'Why do baddies have all the money and power?'
Me: 'Who told you that?'
Him: 'You did.'
