Kids want to know about current events, but adult news shows and sites can sometimes be scary, overwhelming, or even boring for a young audience. The websites and apps on this list offer stories of interest to kids and make serious events more digestible. If kids are seeking information about news that’s potentially upsetting, it’s always a good idea to discuss the issue together and get some reassurance or guidance. Breaking news also can be tough on kids, since facts can change quickly and sometimes initial reporting is wrong or offtrack. Parents can use these kid-friendly sources as a jumping-off point to discuss how news is reported and how to be a critical media consumer. Also, help kids understand how to identify legitimate news sources and avoid stuff that’s too partisan or even completely fake. Encourage your kids to find out what’s happening in the world!
Kids should enjoy the NBC Learn sections on timely topics such as the science and technology behind the Winter Olympic Games, planetary changes, water sustainability, and social and historic concepts. Each section features short (usually fewer than six minutes), informative videos produced by NBC News; they’re brief.
This special tool brings current events and other newsy tidbits to kids through an easy-to-understand system of symbols and voice recordings, which you can adjust to fit your kid’s unique needs. Since many kids love categorizing and organizing, this symbols system provides structure and predictability to words and ideas presented.
