The Cycle of Life

How do you explain death to a child? How do you help them understand that it is inevitable, while still allowing them to mourn their loss?

As parents we sometimes want to protect our children from the concept of death. Today’s metaphor explores these difficult questions.

Welcome to the seventh Metaphor Monday video. Where I explore a different metaphor each week, viewing parenting from a different perspective.



What have been your experiences in helping children understand death? I invite you to share below in the comments.
