There are very few times when etiquette matters more than when someone is attending a funeral. This is why many parents leave their children at home. They worry the child might misbehave or make inappropriate comments. The subject of death is difficult for everyone but it is necessary for children to eventually learn this reality of life. Here is how to decide if a child is ready for this type of event and how to manage the situation respectfully.
If you are in the process of adopting a child, you are probably really excited and are ready to get things moving. Before you can bring your child home, however, you are going to need to make sure that you are properly prepared. For one thing, you'll want to ensure that your home is adequately prepared. This is important because the adoption agency may want to see your home before you adopt, and you will also want to ensure that the home is a great place for the child.
