Informing your child of a death and helping him grieve

When there is a death in the family, the toughest part of the process can often be informing others of the loss - especially children. Whether or not they were close to the person who passed away, it's important to properly convey the situation in order for children to grieve.

ChildGrief.org reports that when discussing death with a child, keep in mind that the conversation should be short, simple and honest. Don't bend the truth when telling your loved ones about a death - simply saying "He died," instead of "He is just sleeping," is more direct, which can help with the grieving process.

It's also important to note that children express grief in different ways than adults. They may have a series of questions to ask following the death of a loved one, and you should be receptive to them at all times. Although this can be tough, you'll be helping your young ones grieve properly.

Don't be afraid to speak to a psychic you trust if you are having difficulty with this situation. Psychic readings can provide you with further insight into how to deal with the loss.
