    Talking to a child about death and grief is a big concern for many caregivers, and many tend to avoid it as much as possible out of fear and concern. However, by being open and honest with our own emotions and our communication, we can teach our children that it is alright to do so as well. When this is coupled with love, patience, and reassurances, we can help our children learn about death and grief in a healthier and more beneficial way.
