Let's role play, pretend that I am a third grade boy, "Ms. (my name), why do people die?"

2 Answers

I explained that all living things come to the end of their life cycle and when that happens they die. I was caught so off guard... Less

I would have talked about death being part of a life cycle, then ask why the student was thinking about death ( Did they loose a grandparent, other relative, friend or pet?) Depending on their answer I would offer comfort and make a mental note to contact their parents so they would be aware. If it was a pet who had died I might suggest they read The Tenth Good Thing About Barnie , a book about a child who’s pet dies and how they deal with it. Less

An example of a stressful situation I’ve dealt with is, when I was working at the adult day services I dealt with a young adult individual who always wanted to get her way, and when she wouldn’t get her way she get very upset and start yelling or bothering others. When the individual would act this way I would take her to what we called the ‘sensory’ room which was kind of like a time out room for the clients and I would let her calm down in there and sometimes she would talk to me (which usually calmed her down) and when she was ready we’d go back into the activity.
