Many times parents ask about talking to their children about death. Often they feel it is better to keep children away from hospitals and funerals. What happens when a child is “protected” is that they are shut out from reality. They feel emotionally abandoned. Children may not always understand death and dying however their bodies and hearts know that something is amiss. If you can’t talk to them about death, buy a book that explains it and read it to them. Afterwards allow them to process and ask questions. You don’t have to have all the answers, they just need you with them as they journey through life.
I highly recommend the book, I miss you! Here is a link to Amazon Buy Here on Amazon Today’s Reading in Grandma’s reading room.
