Let's face it, the news is pretty important in today's world. But sometimes the regular news stations are too much to show the kids.
As a child myself, my dad always watched the news, but he never told me anything at all. He never watched it around me and a discussion never happened in our house about what was going on in the world, even as a teenager. So you can imagine my surprise when I got married and realized the world wasn't as perfect as I had thought it was. My parents had brought me up in a bubble, hoping to shelter me from everything, but instead of helping, once that bubble popped I was terrified. When I saw the world as it was for the first time as an adult all alone in the big world, I freaked.
Don't let that happen to your kids! Believe me, it's not good for anyone to be given a shock like that suddenly. Instead you should discuss situations with your kids and Channel One News helps parents be able to do that easier.
If you've never watched Channel One News, you're missing out on something great. Unlike the other news networks, Channel One is dedicated to asking the opinions of young people. Why you might ask? Because young people are the future of the world so why not keep them informed!
