I think that a child should not be told that a parent is terminally ill.They should be able to have the memories of that parent the way the parent would want the child to remember them, alive and not in pain or ill. As a parent I would like my kids to remember me in a good way,not suffering.

I think it all depends on the age--at younger ages, there is no reason to spell out the truth, but older children need to know something about what's happening, or it will cause more stress. It's a tough call.
