Here are some helpful resources on talking with elementary children about death and/or suicide:
From the Psychology Today article:
"Our thoughts and feelings come from our brain, and sometimes a person’s brain can get very sick – the sickness can cause a person to feel very badly inside. It also makes a person’s thoughts get all jumbled and mixed up, so sometimes they can’t think clearly. Some people can’t think of any other way of stopping the hurt they feel inside. They don’t understand that they don’t have to feel that way, that they can get help.
What's instructive about thinking about talking to children about death, and about suicide deaths in particular, is that so much of what I might tell my child is probably what I should keep in mind when talking with adults, too.
Can you name all of the Kardashians? Is an avocado a fruit or vegetable? What's the elevation of Queen Anne Hill? If you know the answer to these, or many other random questions, QAE needs you!
