Would you take your toddlers to a funeral?
My DH & I have two toddlers (ages 3 & 2) and we're faced with an family member dying. I don't feel that a funeral is a place for someone that young. They don't understand what is going on. Now I know that I can get my mom to watch the kids while dh & I attend the funeral but I have a feeling that dh's mom will through a fit if the kids aren't there. My dh's mom has some mental issues.
How do I politely explain that the kids will not be attending the funeral without having anyone butt hurt?
