My 6 year old daughter has been asking a lot of questions about death. One of her friends at school told her that when you die you go to sleep and never wake up. She is very anxious and upset about this.
In the past I told her that your sole lives on and goes to heaven. So she thinks that you wake up in heaven.
She asked if we can go to heaven to visit her uncle (he died when she was a baby) and I told her no, that it's to far away. So she asked if we could mail him a letter and ask him to come visit us.
What should I tell her and how do you explain it. She wants to know if you come back home after you go to heaven. I just don't know what to say without scaring her to much, she worries a lot.
Please help with any suggestions.
