How do you explain it to a 6 year old?

by John on October 11, 2011

Getting ready for work the other day, I overheard my daughter ask my wife a pretty interesting question.

We were getting ready for work and school and had the Today Show on the television. All of a sudden, she asks my wife “Mommy, what are those people doing on Wall Street?”

I was in the other room and didn’t really hear the answer my wife told her, but then she said something that was pretty insightful…

“Well how can we help them get good jobs? It doesn’t seem fair. Can’t we do something?”

I caught myself shaking my head agreeing with her and wondering just how in the hell we’ll get through this? Because if we can’t explain this to our kids…well you get the point.
