Anonymous: My dad jumped off a bridge 2 weeks ago..he passed away. The word suicide has been thrown around my house a lot, and although I can comprehend what it means, I have a 7 year old little sister who doesn't have a clue whats going on and she's turning to me for answers. I don't know what to say to her. How do I explain that...

This is very heavy, and I’m reluctant to answer because I don’t want you to steer in a wrong direction because of advice I gave you.
I am so very sorry for your loss.

I guess I’ll just tell you what I’d do, and this definitely isn’t something you have to use.

I’d sit her down and say ” hunny, you know how people can pass away from things like cancer, heart attacks, car accidents, and old age?  Suicide just means that the person who died caused their own passing intentionally. 
Daddy, he had an illness that he was fighting that you couldn’t see. One that was happening in his brain. Sometimes a persons brain can become very sick and can cause someone to feel very bad on the inside.  It also makes a person’s thoughts get all mixed up, so they can’t think clearly. Some people can’t think of any other way of stopping the hurt they feel inside. They don’t understand that they don’t have to feel that way, and that they can get help. He loved you very very much. but his illness made him unable to let you know that or see how his passing would cause you hurt. It’s not your fault, and if you have any questions or want to talk about daddy you need to know that we’re here to answer you and comfort you as much as we can. You will always be loved and taken care of no matter what.”

Any approach you take is going to feel like the wrong one though, because it’s hard for you to process as well. Make sure your mom or another relative or even a child counselor gets involved so that you don’t feel the added pressure of keeping your little sister in check in your own grieving process.

I’m sending you all my love, dear.
