I will tell him/her the truth: That no one knows what life and death is, and no one knows what happens after that. It is a mystery, and actually makes me so curious sometimes I just can't wait to die - to find out!
I would tell my child the truth - I refuse to speak down to my child no matter what age they may be - I think if you treat a child as an adult from their birth - Their mindset will become accustomed to it.
IMO, parents that treat their children like children will have children that act like children.
I have no idea if I'm correct - But If a child asks me about 'fluffy' - I will tell them what death is. If my child asks me 'what were those strange sounds I heard from the bedroom?' I would tell them what love and sex is.
Every question a child asks is because of curiosity - To not answer to their curiosity is in a way not nurturing it - and to toss it aside with the thought 'they are too young to be told the truth' - I find you are still lying to them.
Don't lie to your children.
There is a good book that covers a lot of areas for children who are not going to be raised by the deluded.
It is called "Raising Freethinkers"

Do you think it is written in a global perspective

Yes it is very global - it does not value any religion - without being too anti-religious. I will send you a pdf if you want. My email is on "my page".
Send me if you think that it is not violation of copyright things etc.
