My family and I live in Colorado — right in the middle of the Waldo Canyon fire that’s been in the news recently. We’re safe and so are most of our friends, but we’re facing impending evacuation and have no idea what’s going to happen next.
I’m wondering: how do I explain to my two-year-old what’s going on without scaring her? I want to be upfront and explain all of a sudden changes and worry she’s seeing us experience, but I don’t want to freak her out or have her think that this kind of thing will happen every day. — Lady Phenix
