What is the appropriate age to bring to a showing and/or funeral? This is a tough question. I have been down this path on a few occasions. I believe a child falls into one of three categories:
Too young to understand ...
Old enough to understand ...
Fall between ...
It is very important to respect the grieving family and friends. You may be part of the immediate family with kids which make the decision to bring children all the more difficult. If you find yourself in this situation, consult a close friend. In the end, do what you feel is right. You are closest to the situation and understand your child the best.
Children look to their parent for guidance and advise on may topics throughout life. It is okay to let them know you are upset. Communicate with them to ensure they understand your feelings. Not communicating leaves them to their imaginations which may not be a good thing.
