    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I think he definitely needs to know but on a 3-year-old's level. My father-in-law died in 2011. My DS was 2 and even then we still told him Papa was bye-bye and that he went to heaven to be with God. We still show him pictures and a whole year and a half later he still knows who Papa was. I personally think 3 years old is an ok age to start talking about death in a way they will understand.
