So if there was every a delicate subject to talk about, this would be it. How do we go about explaining death to children? It is such a personal subject and different for every person involved. In my 20 years of being in practice, every single one has been different. But no less difficult.
I had someone write in with a link that she said really helped her out when she was faced with this decision. Making the decision is tough, then having to explain to your kids is even more tough. I read through it and found many different avenues to find help, even though this particular page starts with Blue Buffalo. They really got a lot of great information together in one place.
Hopefully this link will help some of you out there in your time of need.
