BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Time Magazine was slammed over a bizarre article meant to help parents explain the significance of the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani. “If you need help talking with the children in your life about the aftermath of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani’s killing, @timesforkids has a guide to explaining the topic,” Time tweeted.
In the introduction to the “guide,” Time for Kids executive editor Jaime Joyce acknowledged that children who are watching the news “are likely to have lots of questions” about last week’s airstrike ordered by President Trump and that it’s a “difficult topic to explain to kids.”
“Trust your instincts. You know your kids best. Use that knowledge to gauge the depth and breadth of your discussion,” Joyce wrote. “Sometimes, it’s best to let a child take the lead and only answer the questions that are asked. Often, brief and simple answers can satisfy a child’s curiosity. Just be sure at the conclusion of your explanation, to portray President Trump as a ruthless killer, and to portray Gen. Qassem Soleimani as a family man, who was a Boy Scout leader that often hosted in-home bible studies.”
