As the Cast of Dads gathered for our Holiday show, we shared our collective sadness and thoughts on the terrible tragedy in Newtown Connecticut, and how we’ve been discussing the events with our kids. Since we’re dads of kids from toddler to the 20′s we have different circumstances and thus different approaches to how to address the news.
