Death is a natural part of life, but can be difficult to discuss. Even more difficult when you’re trying to have that conversation with a young child. While we want to shield our children from serious grief and pain, we aren’t always able to. Sometimes we have to have the hard talk with children sooner than we had hoped. We’re welcoming Audrey Penn on the show. Audrey is an award-winning author of several children’s books, including The Kissing Hand, her best seller that helps kids discuss death and grief. Today we’ll be discussing why this concept is so important and how we can have those difficult conversations with our children.
