Helping Children Say Farewell to a Deceased Pet

Recommended Posts


Many families have pets, and like everything else, pets eventually die. Hiding this fact from children can cause several issues to develop. Death is scary, but when someone a child trusts talks to them honestly about death and the fears the child has, this part of life becomes less overbearing and frightening. When a pet dies, the children who were involved in caring for it should be able to say their good-byes to that pet. Finding a substitute or saying it ran away keeps children from experiencing a part of life that can help prepare them for losses later on in their lives.
