Any tips on how to explain death to my (just) 2yo dd?
My Grandpa died yesterday after a short illness and I'm trying to explain to her that he will no longer be around, but I'm not sure how to explain it in 2yo language. She keeps saying "Great-Grandpa is very sick" and we've told her that he has died, but I'm not sure of a way to explain that further.
Or do you just keep saying it when she mentions him? And eventually she'll understand?
My Grandma died when our ds was 7 months old and then my dh's Grandma died 18 months ago, so our ds was 5 then and able to understand a lot more. So, explaining death to a 2yo is new to me. We don't have pets that have died so no analogy possible there.
