Death is one of the two things parents hate to talk about with kids (guess what's the other one…)
But Death is part of life, and just as you can't avoid it, you shouldn't avoid talking about it. In this episode, I discuss why it's so hard for us parents to talk about death with our children, and why we should get over our obstacles and talk with them about death.
- What kids can understand about Death
- How to process their emotions (or lack of emotions)
- How to tell them that a loved on has died
