The importance of discussing death with children. We no longer have a clear sense of how to introduce our children to death. But their questions can help us face up to it. Pragya Agarwal, a behavioural and data scientist, examines the dangers of protecting children from the realities of death rather than allowing it to be a natural part of life. Here, she reveals why pragmatism is key to their understanding and can help children to receive comfort and assistance at sensitive times.
