I realise that this is really coming from left field but it's been bugging me a bit lately. Here's the gist:
I am an Atheist, so I don't believe in anything after death. I've been thinking about what will happen when someone close to us dies and my kids ask where they've gone. I have no idea what to say.
Should I tell them that our loved one went to heaven with the angels so they wont be scared? Even though I don't believe that?
Or maybe they became a star?
Or should I just say that I don't know? (Because I really don't)
So if you are also an Atheist, what did you / will you tell your kids? I am really interested in how other parents handled this subject!
