Parents’ Toolkit: How to Talk to Your Preschooler About Difficult Subjects

The world is a place full of wonders, questions, and sometimes, some complex issues. Your preschooler might start asking questions that leave you fumbling for words. Fear not! Here’s a toolkit to help you talk about those tough subjects.

Embrace Their Curiosity

Encourage your child’s curiosity by keeping conversations open-ended. Their questions are an opportunity to bond, share values, and foster understanding.

Handling Questions About Sickness and Death

Use gentle language and examples from nature to discuss these topics. Reassure them about their feelings and share age-appropriate truths.

Exploring Diversity and Inclusion

Emphasize kindness and acceptance. Teach them that our differences make us unique and special. Share stories and activities that celebrate diversity.

Dealing with Family Changes

Big family changes like divorce can be confusing. Emphasize that love never changes and encourage them to express their feelings.

The Mystery of Babies

Keep explanations about where babies come from light and age-appropriate. Focus on themes of love, family, and togetherness.

Be a Guide, Not Just an Answer-Giver

Use questions as opportunities for exploration. If you don’t know an answer, find out together. Make it an exciting journey of discovery.


Your child’s curiosity is a wonderful thing! With patience, love, and honesty, you can guide them through even the most complex questions. And don’t forget, the friendly staff at Kids ‘R’ Kids are always here with resources and support to help you on this amazing parenting adventure.
