If he's 12 and doesn't know, do you lock him in a cell?
Only if he asks again. Don't hide a truth that can easily be found out.
Why does he need to know that it was kids?
you would think the whole school would have known it was kids... and those kids i believe were younger than him in a lower grade, im sure he wouldve heard about it, are you sure maybe he just doesnt want to talk about it?
There are things you cannot tell 12 year old kid, in this case since its all over the news, It's better that he hears it from a reliable source.
it doesn't matter. he's not a baby. if he doesn't know already, he probably doesn't care enough to be interested.
Have you locked him in a ba<x>sement. How does he not know.
Um, where are your parents and...he's 12, it isn't that young.
He's probably far desensitized enough already for it not to effect him. That's the side-effect to these shock stories. There's so many of them, that now we're unable to have that profound shock that we used to have.
why not I doubt it'll make any difference to a child.
Why do you feel the need to do that?
FFS wake up he alreadys know
