It's never easy to break the news of a death to a child and telling them someone they love has died, it can be one of the worst things a parent or carer has to do.
Therefore it is important that:
You give them the opportunity to be involved in some way.
You are honest whenever possible, even if this means saying 'I can't answer that just now'.
Remember that children do grieve and that their experience is as unique as your own, and that their behaviour might change as they adjust to life without the deceased.
