I remember approaching Remembrance Day when my daughter was young.  I wanted so much for her to wear a poppy, but she resisted because she was afraid the pin would poke her.  I tried to explain the importance of wearing one; it became clear to me, a new dad, that some things are just beyond the reach of little ones.  So how do you explain Remembrance Day to children?  Today’s Parent magazine asked an expert in case you want to bring it up over family dinner tonight.
