DS1 (4.5) is starting to learn about death. We have yet to experience the death of anyone close to us since he has been born, but the other day, he asked about my mom about my grandfather, who died when I was six. She told him that he is with Jesus; that he lives in heaven. He is an extremely anxious child (to the point where we are seeking therapy for it), so we want to go slowly when introducing him to death because we believe it will make him anxious. Dh and I have talked about how we will explain death from a Christian point of view. However, I have been thinking a lot about our close family members who are not believers. When they pass, I can't say they are with Jesus. DS already knows who is a Christian in our family and who is not. How do you explain the death of a non-Christian loved one to your children?
