Our cat had kittens last Tuesday and when we got home today, one of the kittens happened to have died while we were at work. I took the oppertunity to give my daughter alttile lession about death. I just calmly told her that the kitten had died and that it was ok. I let her see the kitten and say goodbye. I know that she may not fully understand what was happening, but I don't want to shelter her from it. I'm not planning on getting into any gorry details any time soon, but I want her to know that death is a part of life.
So, do you teach your kids about death?
