Today is a sad day for my kids especially my 6yo dd, whose bff's 3 yo little sister passed away. Now aside from being there for the family I am stuck ;as is the mother of the little girl, on how to explain to our children what and why it happened. My kids are 8 and 6 yo and the mother has two other kids ages 5 and 6 yo. All I have told my dd (since she is really the one who's friends with the girls) is to give her a hug if she sees that she is sad.
Also, my other question is how do I help this family? Do I still take their kids to the activities we had planned before this tragic life altering event? How much time should I let go by before my dd starts asking for her friend to come over for play dates/sleepovers? So many questions and I just can't seem to find answers at the moment. Please if anyone can help with the ones I have posted I would greatly appreciate it.
