Kids are a vital part of any community and can do community-building
in their own right. Kids also pick up on the anxieties of the
adults around them and need to know what's going on with Y2K.
The two main kids sites we've found so far, both of which are good and overlap a lot, are:
Year2000kids.org: worldwide sunflower gardening project and song for kids. Resources for parents and teachers. Includes a calm, positive explanation of Y2K written for kids.
2000Now.org kid's page is an upbeat site with lots of links.
Among the useful articles we've seen are:
How the Year 2000 Problem Impacts Children By William M. Ulrich
What do I tell the children? from Karen Anderson's Y2K for Women site
FEMA/ARC's brochure "Helping Children Cope with Disaster."
FEMA for Kids site
Domino Physics and Y2K The author observes his son and other kids learning about chain reactions in complex systems by using dominos.
