Should Your Child Attend a Funeral?

A funeral service provides a supportive place to remember the life of a loved one and share your grief with family and friends. Many families wonder whether children—especially young children—should attend a funeral or memorial service.

This video explains that children should be allowed to attend the funeral of a loved one. However, it’s important to talk with your child ahead of time to prepare him for the service. 

If it is appropriate, encourage your child to take part in the service and find ways to remember his lost loved one, such as reading a poem or drawing a picture. At Skylawn Memorial Park, we encourage families to create their own unique ways of celebrating the life of a lost loved one.
