How do you talk to children about grief and loss?

Some of you are not only dealing with your own loss, you are also supporting children in the family with theirs.

Even very young children can pick up on changes in the family, or that someone they love is no longer around. But how do you explain death to them, and how do you support them?

With the help the expert teams in our hospices, we’ve just published these new information pages, to help guide people with this really difficult subject:

How can I support a child with bereavement?
How can I support a teenager or young person with bereavement?
Should children go to the funeral?

Are there children or young people in your family? How have they reacted to their loss? Is there anything that has helped you to cope together as a family?
