Say Danny haha whatever your grandfather went to see God for a vacation and he's going to be there for a while.. But you'll see him.. Tell him that intill he gets old enough to know the truth this is an example hope this did help..(:God bless you on your loss
I believe that it would be best to introduce the subject in an impersonal manner. For example the picture book Goodbye, Mousie is an excellent picture book for little kids. (With denial, then a mixture of anger and sadness, a little boy reacts to the death of his pet. With sensitivity and love, his parents help him prepare to bury Mousie. He finds comfort in painting the box Mousie is to be buried in and filling it with things the mouse would enjoy.)
Tell the child everyone and everything they love will eventually die including you, the kid, and the kid's pets. Go on to explain the child's insignificance in the universe and how his existence is meaningless in the grand scale of space and time. From there tell him there are no gods or Santa Clause and explain how most humans are immoral selfish liars whose only purpose in life is to survive and reproduce. Then go into talking about sex. Proceed to film his reaction and put it on YouTube.
To explain about death is much harder but then you say that our breath stops. tell them just this much don't mention about the pain of dying and explain the popular myths like: we go to heaven after we die or so on>
Tell them that the people that die got to a better place and they can get sick and that you can pray and talk to them who die and they can hear you but you can her them. My mom and dad told me that even those I could not see my grandma and grandpa they can see me and they are protecting me.
Do not say the loved one is sleeping and will not wake up, this can cause the child trouble going to sleep. Be honest with the child and tell them the person has died and explain how their body stopped working. Tell them about the funeral, what to expect and what will happen there. If you are religious, talk to the child about how the soul has gone on to heaven. Take care & god bless.
Not knowing who died or how they died, I would be as honest (without the gore) as possible. I was 11 and home alone when my grandmother (she lived with us and I'm an only child) died and it was from cancer, but extremely bloody, and horrific. My parents were not home at the time and she literally died in my arms. I think there was probably a reason for that, but I'll know one day. But I wouldn't lie, just the basics for now.
