TMI for a 6yr old

Ok so I have custody of my little sister who is 6 now. We have had her since Dec. 2010. She doesn't see her mom at all and only see's her dad 1 time a month . She however does see her maternal grandmother and Aunt. Well over the weekend a distant cousin of hers got into a bad accident and people have posted pics on FB and I mean gross pic Slashed open eyes, legs ect. So we were on our way home from daycare today and she tells me "Sissy I prayed for Skip today' I said "how do u know about that?" she said "Nanny and Aunt Wanda showed me pictures" I am pissed because she should not have been shown those kind of pictures. I called my husband to vent because I am know to go off on someone quick and I'm trying to learn to control my anger. So he seems to think its not that big of a deal. So my question is Would u say something to her grandma and Aunt and how would u go about it? Her grandma is very sensitive and not very smart, and her Aunt is rude and is arguementive to some degree.

    I would say something. But only if you can stay calm. Sometimes it's best to write down what you want to say then say it over the phone. Keep it as non confrontati

    My kid keeps posting things before I'm ready! Lol
    But keep it non confrontational almost mentioning it in passing. I they want to start an argument then just end the phone call or make an excuse to leave.

      For me I would have to say yes 6 yrs old is too young to see photos of that nature, and I say this because of my oldest who was very close to my brother in law who died in a bike accident. She wanted to see him before they cut the machines off but I wouldn't let her go in to see him. I thought it would be to traumatizing at such a young age. As for saying something to the grandma and aunt, I would just say hey look she is too young to see that kind of stuff would you mind not doing so again. Just go about it in a very nice confrontational way, if at all possible. Let me know how it goes.

        I would start out trying to be level headed and calm, and ask Grandma and Aunt which pictures were shown to her. It could be that they were talking about the accident and she asked about it and they showed her pictures of her while she's in good health to remind her who they were talking about. I doubt it... and I think more likely you are right and she was shown something completely inappropriate, but it's better (in my opinion) to start off giving them the benefit of the doubt and get the full story from them before you start accusing them of showing her something inappropriate - especially if her aunt is already argumentative!
