Should You Take Your Child to a Funeral?
When a funeral service for a loved one is approaching, many parents struggle with the decision about whether or not to take their children. The best way to decide is to talk to your child and find out his or her preferences. Many children would prefer to be involved in funeral services rather than left out of them.
Watch this video for tips on attending a funeral service with your child. If your child wishes to go, talk to him or her about what to expect and look for ways for him or her to be involved. For instance, your child may wish to draw pictures or may want to sit by the guest book at the funeral home.
