Children handle pet death rather easily. It is the adult's reactions and actions that can leave a scar of misunderstanding. Most kids feel as strongly over the loss of the pet as adults do, but look to the adults in their lives to decide how to respond to the loss.
Many adults feel it is best to protect children from the upsetting truth of what has happened to their pet and so they lie! They pretend the pet "ran away" or perhaps "moved to the country." Without telling children the truth, it will cause them more pain and the potential for guilty feelings for not taking better care of their pet.
Were you aware that how a child hears about the first death in his life, usually a pet or grandparent, can color his future perspecive on death? Please see this great kids book; http://www.amazon.com/Miss-You-Pets-Heaven-Parent-ebook/dp/B00J0D707Y/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1416880152&sr=1-1&keywords=I+miss+you%3A+all+pets+go+to+heaven You will be glad you did.

Today, we’re going to touch on the topic of saying goodbye to beloved pets who have passed on. We cover this topic periodically because as much as we hope our pets will live forever, they are only with us for a short time and this can be very difficult, emotionally. There are a whole lot of people out there who don’t understand how difficult pet loss is, and will even try and make people feel bad for feeling bad about grieving over the death of a pet. Well, to counter that whole mindset, we’ve invited Melody Jamali from Beautiful Life Urns to the program today. She has some great ideas for celebrating the lives of our four-legged family members who pass on. Then after our halftime break, Kim Sturla, the executive director and founder Animal Place will be checking in to discuss the very ironic practice of shelters and rescues having animals on the menus of their fundraisers! It’s a topic that is definitely worth talking about.
