How Do We Answer Our Children’s Questions About Death?

How Do We Answer Our Children’s Questions About Death?

By Martha Deiros Collado

Talking Sense with Dr Martha

Monday, 29 August

Children are curious about death. It can feel ‘magical’ and strange to them. We all hold different stories about death and making sense of this can help us answer our children’s questions more meaningfully. How can we talk about death without instilling fear? What are the keywords children need to hear to make sense of death? What can you do to look after yourself in this process? Dr Martha talks about this and more.


If you would find it useful to have resources to talk about death and bereavement with children Dr Martha’s favourite reads to share with children can be found here:
