My husband and I watched in fascination as many young people gathered in front of the White House late last night after news of Osama bin Laden's death reached them via phone, Twitter and other social media.

I was in my early 20s when 9-11 happened. It was a defining moment in my young adulthood.

For many of the 20-somethings that I saw last night on TV, it was a defining moment of their childhood. They were in middle school or younger when the terrorist attacks happened.

As our toddler slept, I thought about the ordeal of parents of the 9-11 generation who had to explain what happened to their young ones.

Today, parents will be telling their children about the death of Osama bin Laden and his connection to the terrorist attacks almost 10 years ago.

How are you approaching the news with your kids? Are they asking questions about bin Laden?

How much are you revealing or holding back?
