Speaking about the loss of a loved one can be difficult for anyone, and
communicating with kids about death can be even more of a challenge. If
you’re planning to bring your child to a memorial park or funeral
service following the death of a family member, then watch this video
for guidance on speaking with children about death.
As a parent, it’s important to be completely honest with kids about
what has happened. Delivering the news of the loss of a loved one should
be transparent and straightforward, but at the same time, developmentally
appropriate. When speaking with young children, be prepared to answer
the same questions repeatedly and consistently.
