What age would you say this is best for? Mine are 9 & 5. I'm thinking more for the 9 yo but 5yo would likely see and hear it, too. 

N/M, just noticed the sub forum I'm in, this is probably not for us just yet!

I have some kids who are ready for this when they are younger & some who need(ed) to wait until they were older.

 

I'm going to try it for those who are interested this year, so any of mine can watch now. If it gets too difficult with world events, I'll restrict it to the older kids. My ds#1 really wants to watch it this year. He reminds me a lot of dd#1 - who is the reason we found it in the first place.

What a way to start off the year... I guess tomorrow's episode will definitely be one to pre-watch for the PG-aged crowd. 

 

Thanks. I wish they'd run through June - a lot of school systems run until Midsummer or a little later.

 

 

I wonder if the BBC or some Australian or NZ news channel goes year round. Or maybe even some channel from India or w/e. I know the Dutch student news goes year round (though they only have one episode/day on non-school days... on school days they have the morning and evening news, one of which is 5 min, the other 10, iirc, and then half an hour on Sundays), but I don't think that'd be useful to others here (my kids don't really understand much of it yet either, so while we watched it some last fall, we haven't watched it recently).

My 9 year old loves it.  I haven't let anyone younger than that watch it.   For me it would need a lot of edit and omit for me to let a 5 year old watch it.  I do omit lots of stuff for the 9 and 11 year old.  I think a lot of the terrorist stuff is just so scary.

For those who will want to pre-watch, they usually post the next day's episode the night before. I don't know what time they post it, but it is usually available the evening before.

Obviously I don't know your kids, but neither of mine would have been ready for it at 5. DD9 started watching it last year and loves it. I think DS started watching it at around age 9 or 10 as well.

Toomorrow's episode is up now. I think they post them around 7.
