How to address your child’s fear of death & dying

We promised some information on addressing death & dying with your children since we heard that Topsy & Tim were going to lose their beloved pet dog.

Sadly, since then the atrocities in Paris have taken place which is likely to be on the radar of children of school age especially. We have had a few reports from parents of talk in the playgrounds and of course, there are a lot of questions arising from this.

Renée van der Vloodt has written a blog on the topic of helping your children live life without the fear of dying. In fact, Renée had written this prior to the terror attacks in France but it has become incredibly timely and in any case, hopefully it is a useful guide for you.
