Death can be one of the hardest topics to discuss with your kids.
That's why the producers on Fox's hit show "Glee" are trying to find the best way to deal with Cory Monteith's death.
This week's "Glee" episode will show the students dealing with Finn's death, and your child might need some help dealing with it, too.
Parenting expert Heather Turgeon says when talking to your kids, it's important to give them some space.

"Kids can have real attachments to characters on TV. They can feel a real connection to them so allowing them the space to have feelings about it is a good idea. Knowing that they might really have a reaction, they might have a lot of feelings about it, is important. It's important to give them that space, to talk about it," she said.
