Don't force agenda. Children grieve their own timetable. They may be playing happily one minute, & ready to talk the next. Let child pick communication style. Some kids prefer to let puppets or stuffed animals "talk" it out for them. Some express in art. Talking may be easier while walking, looking through pictures. Answer the question, even if it is a really hard one see below for more.
