As most of you know my mom passed away in October from cancer, I have a 5 yo niece and a 3 yo old nephew. My niece Ava never seems to ask question about grandma, but my nephew Nate does everyday. Ava will correct nate when he asks if they are going to grandma and pap pap's house and she will tell him grandma died and is no there. HE constantly brings up where she went and if she is coming back. The other day when I was babysitting he said Grandma is not at the hospital, grandma is not at home...grandma died...I miss grandma. So I just tell him that always remember that grandma loves him and did not want to leave. He knew my mom was very sick and he saw all the cuts from her surgeries, cause he loves boo boos and needs to inspect everyone and show off his. I just feel bad, cause he is so young and doesn't understand. The other day in the middle of the store he brought it up again and my SIL had to explain it again at the store that she is gone and not coming back. Any suggestions on how to explain death more to a child? My SIL is at a loss for what to tell him other than she is dead and not coming back.
