My 4 year-old daughter recently started asking about her own mortality. She asks if she will die and what happens to people after they die, and she says in an upset way that she doesn't want to die. What are some good ways to answer these questions and concerns? Note that I am not religious but I am open to telling her about various ways that people think about death.
