Open Access Graduate Research Paper
In the nineteen century, the experience of death was a very normal process for children to witness through the death of a brother, sister or parent. At that time most people died in the home, rather than in a hospital, and all the children were involved in caring for the dying family member. Because of this involvement children found nothing strange about death. Jackson (1965) wrote, "that for the children of that vintage death was natural, not remote" (p. 84).
