Should children attend the funeral service?

Many families wonder if it is appropriate to bring their small children to the funeral services. At Anderson-McQueen we encourage you to bring your children to our services because like all grief specialists say, if a child is old enough to love their old enough to grieve. However, these children should do it in small doses.

At Anderson-McQueen, we have our Children’s Play Centers so that if children need to get away from the service for a while and just be kids they can do so. They can watch movies, play in the ball pit, write letters to heaven.

If you or your family are wondering about how to discuss grief with your child, please come visit us as we have plenty of resources available to you, or call us at 727-822-2059.
