What Parents Can Do

Many experts feel that a child should be at least five years of age before being exposed to a funeral home or funeral service and only then if he is willing. Parents may want to describe a funeral or viewing as a way of saying good-bye to the deceased. Under no circumstances should a child be forced to touch, kiss, or even approach the coffin of the dead person.
