Talk to your kids about…
Jed just returned from a tour of duty in a war zone. How likely is it that he would sleep through the invasion? What sounds, etc, do soldiers need to be attuned to in order to survive?
Why are channels of communication a vital link during a battle? Why are some people imprisoned in the town while others are allowed to walk free?
In the 1984 movie Red Dawn, Soviets were the invaders. Now it is the North Koreans. Does this reflect changes in world politics? How is the nationality of the villains the moviemakers choose influenced in a global society where they want to be able to sell their films to other countries?
