Guidance on Speaking with Children About Death

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.

At Mountain View Funeral Home, Memorial Park & Crematory, we offer funeral planning services as well as grief counseling in Lakewood, Washington. To find out more, please call (253) 584-0252.
