I have two daughters and one son - I have a lot of loved ones who've had miscarriages - I've told my girls from even before they got their periods that the monthly bleeding might someday mean they'll have a baby. i've also tried to teach them that if a boy or girl hurts them in their heart not only makes them mad, then that's wrong and they should share that.
And sharing it with me doesn't mean that I'll go and kick but it can mean that they become aware of words to take away someone's own frustration or anger. Sometimes just being aware that we're all different and can be in a bad mood, allow someone a bad day can be a way to handle something.
But most of all that if something said or done to them or another brings a lot of sadness, fright right away with anger or, actually, without anger, to share that with me.
3 kids 25 years since my oldest was born and we're still pretty comfortable talking with each other.
