Preparing a child for the passing of a loved one can be difficult, especially if emotions are high among family members. Children tend to follow the lead of the  beloved adults in their  lives, so thoughtful reassurance with a brief, positive explanation is often well received. Sadly, children can easily misunderstand and or misinterpret information as well as conversations, which can lead them to develop irrational fears of becoming ill or dying. Their perception is rarely accurate as they can only base their emotions on the information they have been exposed to.  Be prepared. Read helpful, comforting suggestions to support emotional security in my article “Finding ways to help children cope with death”.
