For many children, teens and some adults, the thought of death or dying is overwhelming to the point of heightened anxiety, overthinking and even the occurrence of panic attacks.
Here are some tips / ideas to help have that conversation with your loved one about death
No matter what conversation you have, make sure to say it exactly how it is!
Be prepared for questions that are ‘matter of fact’ and direct or blunt (very frank)
Create Visuals (Scripts & Cue Cards)
Provide scripts and explanations about death & dying and what that means for everyone involved
However you tackle this sensitive subject, be mindful of the person you love and support and the way in which they interpret life events!
