This week I received news from my relatives in California that my father's aunt died suddenly following a bout with cancer.
After reflecting for a little bit on what this week's Moms Talk topic would be, I decided it was a good time to broach the subject of death with children.
The death of a loved one is hard to understand - at all ages- but how do you explain death to your children?
Some people write books, others rely on counseling services.
How do you help your children through grief? How do you explain the death of a loved one? What resources have you found helpful?
Each week in Moms Talk, we will start the discussion, take your questions, give advice and share solutions.
