Ask them what it was like before they were born. Ask them what it is like when they are asleep. That is what death is like. Death is just a part of the cycle. Everyone goes through it no matter what and so it is nothing that should be feared. 

Do you have to? I grasped the concept pretty much on my own pretty early on.

I’m sorry I don't visit this site often and didn't see these posts! I have a five year old that has a lot of questions about death. I feel that being honest with him is best. I am not sure who has been speaking to my son about god and angels. I am just preparing for my son to be brought up in a religious world. I was just looking for someone to share their experiences/tips with me.
