talking to children

After the killing at Utøya, a lot of children are asking their parents why he did that. Our child-ombudsman advised the parents to tell them that the killer had “error-thoughts.” He said that every child would know what that means.
And poof, there goes the need for a zillion unnecessary psychological explanations.

Oh yes. Ego thoughts. Error-thoughts. I relate better to really simple words.
