Communicating with Children About Death

Are you in need of cremation, burial, and funeral planning services? If so, then you and your family may be struggling with the painful loss of a loved one. For families with young children, explaining death and helping kids cope with loss can feel challenging. Watch this video for guidance on speaking with children about death.

When communicating with children about the loss of a loved one, it’s important to be comforting while remaining open about what has occurred. Avoiding euphemisms and speaking in concrete terms can make it easier for children to grasp the permanency of death and cope with the loss.

If you need cremation, funeral planning, or grief counseling in Oakland, then please contact Chapel of the Chimes Oakland. You can reach us by calling (510) 654-0123.
