My FIL committed suicide yesterday and we are in shock. So a few questions:
- Have you/would you bring a just-turned-3-year-old (my LO) to the funeral? I told him about the death in straightforward terms today and he's asked a couple questions about "Why did he die?" but seems to be ok.
- What about a 5- and 7-year-old (my niece/nephew)?
- Longer-term, any advice for explaining death (and suicide) to kids?
Ugh this is awful. Any thoughts welcome, especially from those who have unfortunately been there done that.
