Birth to Six
How do you talk about that?
Cover Art This last week we had a tragedy in our neighborhood in which two school children lost their lives. At home we had some talks about it, and as usual I found myself wondering how much information is too much, and how much is just right. Some advice I've received and take to heart is that if you spend time talking about difficult things before they happen, your child will likely be better able to cope when they need it.

Often the first opportunity to talk about losing someone you love is the loss of a pet, as was the case in our house. Look for our book lists on the Birth to Six website for Helping Kids Cope, including one for coping with dying.
