54 p. 
Summary

Included in this booklet is an account of children's concepts of death at various ages. Specifically, the discussion examines the "average" or "normal" reaction of children from birth through 2 years; 3 through 5 years; 5 through 8 years; 9 through 10 years; and at 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16 years. Children's reactions to the death of a pet and guidelines for parents for explaining death to their children are described. Suggestions for classroom discussions about death are offered; these may apply in the family context as well. It is suggested that such discussions in the home may take on added meaning and may enrich communication between parents and children. Suggestions for handling the death of a parent, the death of a child, and the death of a sibling are also included. Finally, two issues concerning whether or not children should attend funerals and the function of grief are examined. (AS)
