Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

How to explain?

1 answers
How do I explain to my 2 year old daughter that my son who is almost 3 months old was just given 7 weeks to live because of a cancer he was late being diagnosed on his cancer. In her mind if he dies, she will say "He be sleep forever?" in which is a way to remember him in her mind, but it makes me really upset that my baby has cancer and that I'm now forced to explain to my daughter that her little brother is dying. Any advice would be helpful.

I would talk to a doctor or therapist about how to handle this.
