Helping Children Deal with Death
Like life, death is an important part of our worlds. It will, at one time or another, affect us all and will affect our children. Has your family had to deal with death? An urbanMamas reader emails:
My father-in-law passed away a couple of weeks ago and we are going to Iowa next week for the memorial service. I have 3 1/2 year old b/g twins. Has anyone had to deal with death and preschoolers? How do we explain what is going on, should we bring them to the cemetary, is there something that can make them feel apart of things?
