How to Speak to Young Children About Death
When a loved one passes away, it can trigger some mature thoughts in kids.
Each week, our council of experts and smart parents take your questions, give advice and share solutions in this parenting column. This feature will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic.
So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation today with a topic and question:

So how do you discuss death with a young child, without scaring them?
