Why are you ruining our world? – FRACK OFF!

What’s the story?

If you haven’t heard.

FRACKING is here.

Right on our door step.

Just a few miles from Brighton it has started in the lovely village of Balcombe.

FRACK OFF and FRACK FREE BALCOMBE websites have recent updates and that’s where I saw this picture. A little boy with a banner:

‘Why are you ruining our world for this? £ $ – It’s only paper.’

How do you explain BAD things like this to our kids.  Not just this, but every BAD thing that is happening in the world.

My kids are still in a land filled with fairies, rainbow and unicorns. I shelter them from the REAL WORLD but I know the time is coming when I need to start explaining BAD things. A while ago I wrote a guest post, ‘But why can’t they save him Mummy‘. And that’s it really. To kids, things are simply black and white.

‘Why ARE you ruining our world?’

There’s a facebook page if you want to show some support.

      I know. My friend laughed at me the other day. We were at a farm with our 3 year olds and my daughter said ‘look at that lovely unicorn mummy’. She was pointing at a lovely white horse and my friend said only my daughter would think it was a unicorn over a horse. My 7 year old still doesn’t know she may never see a real one. Shhh…..

    Fairies rainbows and unicorns is definitely the place to be for children because it’s the real world for them! 🙂

    Sadly I think there’s too much pressure for children to ‘grow up’ and face ‘our’ real world of global warming and dying polar bears – there’s time enough for that. As you say, the best we can do is to shelter and protect them from it – let our children be children…and sometime our teachers too…
