This edition: A Child's View of Death
Original tape date: January 1, 1999.
Children often understand that death is a changed state of being, but not how final it is. Between the ages of seven and ten, their questions about death become more frequent and complicated. In this program, we look at children’s developing understanding of death as well as their growing fears as they react to losing a parent or sibling. One section is devoted to the special anguish of a teenager's reaction to death.
