PBS Kids GO! It's My Life
Dealing With Death

Discussion questions for kids to bring up with adults

General Questions:

What do you think happens to people when they die?

Did you ever deal with the death of someone you loved? How did you get through it?

Is it normal for me to sometimes think about my own death? Do you ever do the same thing?

What would happen to me if you died?

Questions Following a Death:

What's going to happen at the funeral? Can I participate in the funeral? What if I don't feel like going at all?

How can I find ways to let out these feelings I'm having? Can we come up with things to do together that might help both of us?

If I think I need to talk to someone, like a therapist or someone from our place of worship, can you help me arrange that?

Are there places where I can meet and talk to other kids who are going through the same thing?
