Children & Funerals
Should your child go to a funeral?
Deciding whether your child should attend a funeral is ultimately up to you. It is important that you recognize that you know your child best, and that you should make the decision based on what your child can handle. Children like adults often have a need for closure, and while some children may be frightened by seeing their family members saddened by the death of a loved one, they may feel a need to attend anyway.
Roth-Goldsteins’ funeral directors feel strongly that children should be allowed to help make the decision that is best for them. If they are looking for closure or aren’t sure what happens at a funeral we can provide a comfortable environment where they can feel safe.
If your child does decide to attend and at any time changes their mind, we will gladly take them back to the family room.
