I know she died, but when is Grandma coming back?

Why is your skin darker than Mommy's?

Why do we live here but Daddy doesn't?

Are you the tooth fairy?

Anyone with kids in their life knows what it's like to be surprised by a tough question. It can come at any time, often when you least expect it: at breakfast, at bedtime or from the back seat.

We're parents ourselves, and it's these questions — and the awkward, knee-buckling panic they induce — that led us to create a new series of parenting guides for NPR's Life Kit, a family of podcasts dedicated to making your life just a little bit easier.

Life Kit's podcast, with help from Sesame Workshop, is full of research-tested strategies to help you navigate conversations about death, race celebrates its 50th season, so you know they know what they're doing.
