Talking about War in the Persian Gulf: A Discussion Guide for Parents.
Jones, Susan; Berman, Sheldon
This guide offers answers to questions parents may have about discussing the Persian Gulf War with their children. The following questions are among those chosen: Should children watch programs about the War in the Persian Gulf? Won't it just scare children more if we talk about it? How can I listen to my children in the most effective and helpful way? How do I deal with the conflicting opinions that exist about the War? What should I do if my child wants to learn more about War but the school isn't teaching about it? A section on the role schools can play in helping children to cope with and learn about the Persian Gulf War is included. A 17-item list of resources for parents also is included. (DB)
