My Daughter Died. How Do I Tell My Son?

My Daughter Died. How Do I Tell My Son?

Being the father of a daughter who is about to turn two, this animated video shook me up more than I anticipated. It’s not just that this father tells the story of how he lost his daughter. But what follows: What it means when your second child grows older than your first one ever became. And that big looming moment: How do you tell your son that he has a sister who is no longer around? Content warning: Contains the description of a child’s death.

From Weekly Filet #290, in February 2020.
