My daughter and I started talking about Neil Armstrong since they are talking about in school. From that conversation, it wen to talking about people dying. She is 6 and not something she has really had to deal with on a personal level yet, other than her frog in the aquarium a couple of weeks ago. i told her that nothing lives forever and it's a part of life.
I know there are people out there that don't necessarily have religous beliefs about Heaven, etc. But, she and I started to have a bit more of a serious conversation about it. Unfortunately for her, he dad is quite a bit older than me. He is 69 and had been diagnosed with cancer a few years back, so its a subject i try to talk to her about so that when the time does come it's something that we have discussed and hopefully be at least more comforted by the fact that daddy will be with Jesus and God in Heaven and that at some point when she finally enters heaven that she will see him again.
Has anyone else ever talked to their kids about this?
