My 4 year old niece's pet fish died today after just a week here at home. I didn't know how to explain to her that it's dead and why or how. She was shocked when I told her and she just stared at the fish in the fish bowl floating. I ended up promising her that I'll buy her a new one. How do you usually tell a child that his or her pet died?
