How do you tell children about death?

(excerpts from the brochure)

“The belief is often that children will not understand death, or that they will be crushed emotionally. If fact children understand more than we grown-ups think.”

“Children are naturally curious, and they will most likely have many questions. What a child will want to know about death depends on their age and any previous experience they have with death.”

“Your child’s relationship to the deceased has not ended; it has only changed. After a funeral, keep pictures and other reminders of the deceased around to spark conversation with your child. This will help form a new set of emotional bonds with the person who died.”
