Talking to Children About Heaven

OnSugar Blog: What Is Heaven Mummy?

Lots of moms think out loud, and Hansel and Gretel does too. What Is Heaven Mummy? comes from the Hansel and Gretel blog at OnSugar.

This is one question that I was not prepared for. Don't get me wrong, I love and encourage as many questions from Tyler as possible and I do try to answer them as honestly as I can, even though sometimes my answer is still not accepted for some bizarre reason. I quite often refer those science and mechanical based questions to my husband and Google the rest of those tricky questions (gotta love Google). When I read a gorgeous book called "Heaven Is Having You" I should have known better. I should have done my research, geared up, ready for the big question, "What is Heaven?".

When (Tyler) asked, I sat there for a long minute and thought of all different answers to give but to be quite honest, I was gobsmacked, I didn't have an answer and I am not even sure what heaven is. I Googled it (and) I still wasn't happy with the given information. This was one concept I wasn't ready for. So the next best thing was ......."ask your father". Has anyone else stumbled across a tricky question?
