    what have you told them about it? I was expecting my stepson to ask about it this year, but he didn't say anything and hes never talked about it before.

    I think it depends on the kid. How old is he ? Is he interested in that general subject at all? Hell, I know 40 year olds that just don't care about those sorts of things at all.

    Daughter was 5 and she doesn't remember the incident that day, but is aware from discussions at school and home.

    I was in seventh grade. All I really "remember" from that day is my teachers freaking out and us being on lockdown for the whole morning and being let out of school early.

    It was my first year in the DC area, actually, we'd just moved there, and my mother worked for the DOJ, nobody told me what had happened but "they bombed DC", so I kind of freaked but then my mom picked me up from school. I also remember going roller skating with some friends after getting off of school early and having school off the next day.

    I think I have a much better grasp of what happened now then I did then.

    My daughter was 6 at the time, in first grade.

    She remembers.

    That following Sunday I took her with me to downtown Indianapolis for a benifit, and she and I donated money to the 9/11 fund.

    She also learned about a lot of heros.

    I remember being in fifth grade, coming home and seeing it on television after hearing hushed discussions about it by teachers all day. Simplest way to explain it would be using history. Say Pearl Harbor for example.

    My youngest was a new born... so no she does'nt remember it, but she has asked questions like "why did it happen?" and who did it?".... I just tell her we were attacked by some very evil people who dont like America and Americans. I figure when she is old enough to understand it I will give more details, but not until I think she is mature enough.

    My 18 yr old was old enough to know that it was bad, but she didnt understand why the bld's fell. We have since had many discussions on it and she gets it... in fact I think she understands what we are up against more the "the commander in chief" (and I use that term loosely).

    So how do we teach Newtonian physics?

    I wonder how many 8th graders can figure out reasons why airliners could not destroy buildings that big that fast but have parents that believe that they did?

    Conspiracies are irrelevant. The laws of physics don't give a damn about them.
