Talking to Kids About Death: Popcak in Australia Catholic Family Magazine

The latest issue of CathFamily E-Magazine is out!  cath-family

In light of the feasts of All Saints and All Souls, they asked me to share a bit about how parents can handle children’s questions about death.  It’s a tough topic, but one that every parent has to address at one point or another.  My thanks for Byron and Francine Pirola, founders of both (the most prominent Australian Catholic marriage ministry) and (SmartLoving’s sister ministry) for inviting me to write for their excellent publication. Incidentally, if the Pirola name is familiar to readers, Byron and Francine are, respectively,  the son and daughter-in-law of Ron and Mavis Pirola, the Australian couple who presented at the Extraordinary Synod.  In fact, Byron and Francine’s adult daughter, Kiara, is the editor of Catholic Family, making her the 3rd Generation of Pirolas engaged in Catholic marriage and family ministry Down Under!  They are a truly awesome, faithful family  who are on fire for God and his plan for marriage and family life.

Anyhoo, it’s a great issue (and I’d say that even if I wasn’t in it)!  I hope you’ll check it out!
