An informative post that could definitely help children.

Imagine having all these questions about what is happening and no one answers them? Imagine having your mother die right in front of you and again no one person comes over to comfort you or explain what just happened!

Death is not easy, but I have found when it comes to children that simple explanations help. Hugs, offering to listen and answering their questions in age appropriate words and explanations is best.

Ignoring their questions is not the solution as it does not change anything. If anything it makes them question more, frustrates them or makes them angry.

Imagine not being allowed to attend you own mother’s funeral/burial!

This is not how death and grieving should be……..death is part of the cycle of life and at some point society needs to accept this.
