Out of Sight, Out of Mind. Or Is It? The Impact of the War on Children in the United States
Levin, Diane E.; Van Hoorn, Judith
Childhood Education, v85 n6 p342 Aug 2009
The war in Afghanistan began in October 2001 and the war in Iraq began in March 2003. After each war started, discussions addressed how it might be affecting American children and how adults could talk to children about it. In this article, the authors discuss the impact of the war on children in the United States. The authors believe that the war is taking a toll on children in the United States--a bigger one than the general public or educators seem to be willing to acknowledge. The authors also believe that this denial has led to a failure to develop adequate strategies for trying to counteract the harm the war is causing children in the United States.
