comment How should I talk to my child about death?
@lode We didn't use euphemisms like "passed on" or "went away", we simply said that grandma had died and that that meant she wasn't around any longer. That we were sad about that, but that we were happy for the time we spent with her and that it is natural for people to die (although sometimes some people die earlier than we would like). Hope that helps?

comment How do you handle poor behavior by other people's children?
@kevin Thanks :) And, good point, it definitively helps to discuss the bad behavior (be it others or his) afterwards in establishing what's acceptable and what not.

comment How should I talk to my child about death?
@javid Thank you. Re Fairness, I hear you and think it's probably situation dependent. We wouldn't have brought it up if my son hadn't been angry, saying it wasn't fair the person died at a younger age than most.

great add. I completely forgot about our son going through the same; we used similar points to address his fears.
