24 Stories To Work Death With The Little Ones

Talking about death is still taboo and more among the little ones. Parents do not want to discuss death with their children, even if there has been a close death in the family.

From El Pupitre de Pilu, they believe that now that both Halloween and All Saints’ Day are approaching , it is a good context to talk about this topic and not wait for a familiar situation to arrive to do so, since literature is magical and with she can let the subject of death be taboo, even in the 21st century.

Pilu Hernández Dopico, teacher, trainer of trainers and CEO of El Pupitre de Pilu assures us: “We are increasingly struck by the fact that parents avoid talking about this topic and most of the time it is the minors who do the questions. And this happens because they think that their children are not prepared to assimilate that death is something that is going to happen to all of us. ”

For this, the expert advises how to do it: “How difficult it is to explain death to the little ones, but death would not exist without life and that is where we have to start. Children are used to seeing death as something that It happens to others but never to them and how everything has to be prepared, although it is true that you never are ??. ”

So Pilu Hernandez Dopico presents 24 stories where this aspect is worked on and how much they help us to work with them depending on the age of the children.
