I posted awhile back – on the occasion of my late father’s birthday – about how nothing drives home the fact of adulthood quite so clearly as the death of a parent.
But I think second in line is talking to your kids about death.
I was delighted to do a guest post on this topic for the Times On Line’s Alpha Mummy blog today. Alpha Mummy is the self-described blog for “mums and dads who work, used to work, or want to go back to work one day.” I’m a regular there, and hope you will be too.
