For the highly read social site Lifehacker.com, David Castro-Blanco, Ph.D., ABPP, Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology at the Adler School, is among the experts who offer guidance for talking with children about death.
"The 'rule of thumb' regarding discussing death with children is to talk about it in a way that matches the child's developmental level," explains Dr. Castro-Blanco, who maintains practice and research expertise in child and adolescent psychology. "In other words, don't give the child more than s/he can handle, in the name of being 'honest' or 'accurate.'"
