My dad is terminally ill and while I don't need to worry about telling my LO anything, my sister has 3 kids aged 12, 9 and 6. My brothers 6 yr old has been asking them what its like to die and those sorts of questions which they've dealt with because she overheard an adult phone conversation but my sisters kids don't know anything and she was asking me if I thought she should start to prepare them. I didn't really know what to say, apart from I thought maybe she could tell them granddad is very poorly. I think shes dreading it as the oldest child will take it hard and be deeply upset but the middle one has anger issues and shes expecting him to flip out and react angrily. I realise this is a sensitive thread but does anyone have any experience with breaking bad news to kids?
