What do you tell little children about death if they are asking about why someone is missing?
My 3 or 4 y.o. 1st cousin once removed asked me where my mother was today (mum recently passed away from cancer, but previously has been around when my cousins have been). I kind of dodged the question and have let my cousin know about her daughter’s curiosity in this respect over Facebook after I got home. I meant to do it there, but got side tracked with something.
Anyway now I’m wondering is there a right way to go about telling a little kid about death and cancer and all of the crappiest parts of life?
