Comment: You dont give kids enough

You dont give kids enough

You dont give kids enough credit. Depends greatly on maturity and what not, but yes, they are indeed capable of understanding things. While I wouldnt perhaps expect a 3 year old to understand such a decision like this, I would expect a 6-7 year old would be able to comprehend it.
Its like everyone forgets they were kids once(actually, I recently found out this is true to a large extent so that makes me all the more interesting because I actually remember) and I understood at something like 7 well enough what death was.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
