How to talk to children about death

Jenni Thomas and Nick Heath introduce the series which is aimed at helping those who are grieving or anyone who is supporting someone who is bereaved. They are joined by former England cricket captain Andrew Strauss whose wife Ruth died after a diagnosis of lung cancer.

In the year leading up to Ruth’s death, Jenni saw both her and Andrew to help them talk to their children at a very difficult time. Andrew talks about the support that Jenni provided and how the family managed Ruth’s funeral.
