I doubt I will get much of a response as there does not seem to be much activity. But oh well, it never hurts to try.
Our kitty died a few months ago and my daughter(3 and 1/2) is still talking about it.
To everyone. One neighbor and one family member (a close, knows better type of family member) told my daughter "its ok, all animals go to heaven." Arrg. What am I supposed to do with that? We have explained what happened. She almost understands but then that. I brushed it off and so far nothing from daughter about heaven yet. But she continues to talk about the kitty and tell people so I know this will happen again. What do I say to her? Help.

you could just explain to her everyone has a different idea of where people go to die, like a story.:)

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I know this is an old thread, but I just want to say something about it. I am an Atheist. When something like this happens with our family and my son starts getting comments from others, he turns to me for the answer. I turn it back on him. I say, "what do you think happens?" When he tells me, I say that he has a good idea and that no one REALLY knows for sure. He knows I do not believe in God and he knows my reasons. I try to encourage him to come up with his own feelings and tell him that everyone will have an opinion that he needs to consider and then either adopt because it is inline with how he feels it or discard it based on what he thinks. Right now he is into Greek Gods and I support him. Your beliefs are personal and they come from inside you. They don't come from your friends, your teacher, or your parents - and definitely not a church promoting their agenda.
