Teaching Our Children About Life and Death

By Roberta Louis-Goodman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2003

The author argues that children are drawing conclusions about the meaning of death whether or not their parents or teachers engage them in conversations about the meaning of these experiences. She urges that as parents and teachers, we need to explore with our children Jewish views about death and dying, and engage them in developmentally appropriate conversations.
