More On Heroes Who Fall: Aaron Hernandez

Continuing the discussion of how to talk to kids when their heroes fall, I am sharing a link to a piece I wrote about Aaron Hernandez

His story certainly made national news and continues to do so. But if you live in the Northeast – and especially Massachusetts – this story hit home hard. The Patriots are a local obsession with a highly devoted fan base. So thinking through the ways in which parents and kids would talk about it was an interesting exercise. The most important thing, to me, was simply the idea that parents would have continuing discussions with their kids.

What would you say?
