But how to be at right words what in general It is necessary to tell to the kid? What to begin so serious conversation with? What to tell and what it is better to hold back?


1. Many parents try not to touch as long as possible upon death subject with the kid that it did not sadden his childhood. Actually better beforehand and in a form, available to the child, to tell him about death. Such conversation not only will take place easily, but also will allow you to prepare the kid for the inevitable future.

2. It is possible to tell the child about death in 3-4 years. At the same time phrases have to be the simplest. For example, you can explain to him that old flowers on beds die in the fall, but on their place new grow in the spring. We remember flowers which blossomed here last year, we will remember also these.
