Tip Sheet

IS it okay to show your child the dead body of its pet? i think that that is not so good, since it might traumatize your child and give it bad dreams. yet again, if you do show it to your child, then it understands better that it isn't coming back.

No. Absolutely not. Just as young children are traumatized by yelling and screaming, they are deeply scared by death and the less they have to deal with it at a young age the better.
