... with your kids:
- Choose a safe space and time and give them your full attention.
- Check in with an open question about what they know and how they are feeling about the topic.
- Let them lead the conversation with their questions.
- Set a calm, reassuring tone and offer physical comfort.
- Be honest but maintain appropriate boundaries and don't postpone the conversation.
- Be honest about your emotions but let them know you will feel better soon.
