I lost my daughter last year and am now taking care of one of her son's while his older brother is in a group home. The one I am taking care of is going to be 12 this year and he thinks if he goes to sleep he won't wake up because for some reason he thinks thats how she died but it is not how it happened. I need some help on how I should talk to him so he don't feel as though her death is his fault nor his brothers'. She was depressed because of some things that had taken place and didn't want to live any more and I just don't know how I should tell him she took her own life. I feel he is too young and as it stands he knows she was on some meds and was drinking which was a bad thing and that it was an accadent. Should I tell him other wise or wait?
