Condolences on the loss. I'm glad you could take the 2 oldest kids with you. Then-wife didn't give our daughter the option when my cat (the first pet daughter had ever known) had to be put down. My daughter still resents losing that cat without having had a chance to say goodbye.

I would say "give the option to be there". I was there when my father put our beagle down when I was a teenager. I wish I was never there.
