Text of Reference Article

Annotation of Reference Article

Grief, Death, Funerals. Encyclopedia of Children and Childhood: In History and Society.

After the 1950's in the United States, discussions of death with children became taboo. Before that time, children were included in funeral rites and participated in demonstrations of mourning (such as wearing black after a death). Also, adults used the fear of death as a disciplinary and religious tool (through scary bedtime stories and rhymes). This article is important for showing how children in Western societies became more removed from open expressions of grief starting in the mid-20th century.
