Today, our dog died. My daughter was really upset about it, so my husband tried to cheer her up. "At least she will be doing something that she liked forever: Sleeping!" My daughter continued to cry for half an hour. FML

Haha, lucky for me, my parents never tried to cheer me up about pets when I was a kid. As a matter of fact, all my pets went off to live at farms, and none of them actually—oh. Wait…

At least he tried. Give him a break

I don't see what's so mean about that lol

It's the way the father phrased it. There are other ways to make a child feel better after a loss rather than so candidly.

Actually, I don't see what's so mean about the phrasing either. It's just the same as telling a child that grandma has gone to heaven. He tried to lessen the pain by making it sound as if the dog is much better off dead. at least he's doing something he likes. The father tried, I'm sure nothing he said would have lessened the poor girl's pain of losing her pet

Well. He tried.

Poor kid :(

He's not wrong.

Just a hunch but I don't think that is why OP posted it here.

He gets a silver star for trying.

I don't really see anything wrong with what he said. She loved the dog, chances are she as gonna cry for more than half an hour anyway.

Some people aren't good with emotion. I think he did a good job in trying.

I think he handled that well. I mean sleeping is awesome!
