don’t think about war as a topic for children, but violence and
war affect all children in one way or another. Some children live in war
zones and are affected directly, while other children watch these
events on television, hear them from radio, or read about them in newspapers
and on the computer. Modern media bring wars and political violence into
homes. Children who are exposed to political violence in this way will
need to share their reactions, questions, and confusions with someone
they can achieve
This section includes materials that can be used by and with children. There are activity pages that children of varying ages can use to learn about peace and war and to explore and express their reactions about these issues. Parents, teachers, and other adults can also use these activities with the children when they talk with them. Those adults can share their ideas to encourage development of peacemaking skills and to build more understanding of the events in the world.
