Children who experience death in their family early in their lives may go through trauma, or even depression, due to the event. It is important that at an early age, they are provided with sufficient guidance regarding the topic by their parents or guardians.
Here are a few tips on helping your child understand death:
- Explain the subject in a manner that the child will understand, or to which he will be able to relate — use a story book, TV show, or the death of a pet.
- Encourage him to ask questions and be very gentle with your answers.
