Abstract
Ce dépliant explique comment aider votre enfant à faire face à la fin de vie, à la mort et au deuil. Il explique comment les enfants peuvent réagir lorsqu'une personne est très malade, comment planifier adéquatement les visites de la famille à l'hôpital ou au centre de soins palliatifs et l'importance de prendre le temps de parler à votre enfant. Il fournit aussi des conseils quant à la présence ou non des enfants au moment du décès et des recommandations pour annoncer à un enfant qu'une personne est décédée. On y traite également des sujets suivants : la préparation aux rituels et aux funérailles, l'importance pour les enfants de parler ouvertement de leur peine, la nécessité de garder des souvenirs de l'être aimé, la façon dont les réactions des enfants peuvent différer de celles des adultes et la nécessité de demander du soutien lorsque l'enfant est anxieux. On fournit des conseils pour les différents stades de développement (p. ex., les enfants de 3 à 5 ans, de 6 à 8 ans et de 9 à 12 ans) et une liste de ressources en ligne.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Talking to Children About Death and Grief: Information for Parents and Caregivers" pamphlet 2024. This pamphlet outlines how to help your child cope with dying, death, and grief. It explains how children may react when someone is very ill, planning appropriately for family visits at the hospital or hospice, the importance of making time to talk to your child, guidance on whether children should be present at death, and guidance on telling a child that someone has died. Other topics include: getting ready for rituals and funerals, the importance of children needing to talk about grief openly, keeping reminders of your loved one, how their reactions may differ from those of an adult, and asking for extra support when your child gets anxious. Tips for developmental stages (e.g., children aged 3 to 5, aged 6 to 8, and aged 9 to 12) are given and a list of online resources are provided.
