About a month ago we bought all 3 of our older kids a Betta fish, the girls and I just went to feed them and my 4 yr old DD's fish was dead. She understands what death is, my cockatoo just passed 2 months ago and MIL's dog died. So we explained everything to the kids. It's freezing cold outside windy and snowing so I wasn't about to go outside and bury the fish. I explained to her when a fishy dies you can flush it down the toilet and it will take it back out to ocean to be buried. Well she thought that was the greatest thing ever and started laughing her butt off. She got so excited to flush it! Afterwards she asked me if we could kill the other 2 fish so we could flush them also. Kinda gave me the creeps that she wants to kill all the fish just to flush them

My son was the same way. He settled for action figures n rolls upon rolls of toilet paper instead.
