Advice for Parents on Talking to Children about Death

Children often have a hard time understanding exactly what death means. When death does occur, whether it’s losing a family pet or the passing of a relative or close friend, make sure to engage with your children to help them cope with the loss and move on emotionally. In this video, psychologist Dr. Charlotte Reznick shares advice for parents on talking to children about death. She suggests letting children use their imagination to come to terms with death and what it means to them.
