How to Help Your Kids and Tweens Cope with the Loss of a Celebrity

I woke up early Sunday morning to see the news that Cameron Boyce, a beloved Disney actor, unexpectedly passed away due to complications from an epileptic seizure.

It was a shock to me mainly because I had no idea Cameron even had this lifelong medical condition. All three of my kids watched this very talented actor on the small and big screen. Situations, where celebrities pass away due to various reasons, can surprise even their youngest fans. Questions usually follow and my parent duty is to help answer those inquiries to the best of my abilities.

In most cases, our children are left upset. Maybe they looked up to that particular person or was influenced by something their character did. In my latest Today Parenting Team article, I share how I previously helped my kids to cope with the loss of an actor they adored.
