Death is a natural part of life, yet we avoid talking about it in American society. We speak with a psychiatrist and expert in grief and trauma about how parents, caregivers, and adults in general can best have conversations with young people about loss and death. How do you broach the subject? What shouldn’t you say? We answer these questions and more this week on Viewpoints.
