Despite the loss of her husband to throat cancer, and herself struggling with throat muscles inflammation, Celine Dion has raised her kids by giving some inspirational values.

According to Shared, the legendary singer has remained strong for her 17-year-old boy Rene-Charles, and her 7-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson, whom she considers the 'most important people in her life.'

When her husband, Rene Angelil, was going through a long battle with cancer, the singer knew she had to explain about his imminent death to the children in the best possible way.

So, she chose to compare death to the movie Up, which was one of their favorite movies, and told her children that their father had gone "up," because "Papa was very sick."

She explained to her kids that just like the wife of the main character in the movie, their father had gone up to the sky as well. Then she reassured them by saying that they could let him know that they were thinking about him by sending up balloons.

However, the singing icon did not teach her children to just send balloons up to commemorate their father. She also taught them to keep his memory alive by mentioning his name every night before they went to bed.

"He left me with all of his strength. Every day we live with him, just not physically. I'm thankful that he does not suffer anymore," the source quoted Dion as revealing in an interview.

Since the children lost their father early on, Dion wants to make sure that her children feel 'safe and loved' every night. She has made cuddling an important part of their lives, as it is known to 'release feel-good hormones.'

Dion believes that this is helping her children to cope with the pain, fear, or anxiety of losing a loved one. This also gives Dion herself a lot of comfort in the difficult time.
