How to Explain Death to Children

Death can be a daunting and sensitive topic to think about explaining to children, especially those that are close to you. We often do not know what to say or do not want to hurt our children, so we end up not saying much at all. It is important to talk with your children about death, so that they feel free to ask questions and express their feelings with you. We have compiled some resources that may be helpful in explaining death, illness, and funerals to children.
