BTW your quote from Albert Einstein - "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough", is said in the name of Rav Chaim Brisker too - Oyb es felt in hasbara, es felt in Havanah.
If Einstein actually said it that would be pretty ironic seeing as he wrote a theory that only 3 people were said to understand at the time...

Death is fundamental to understanding life. These concepts need to be ingrained, the earlier the better.
As soon as they can grasp the concept, throw it at them.


-Maybe even earlier. See ramban  in parshas nitzavim by mitzvah of hakel. Basically explains that kids come at a certain age even though they cannot fully understand now, because in the future the will have יראת שמים because they attended.
Also see chaggiga 3a.

You can ingrain schar veonesh, without focusing on death.
BTW, my Rosh Yeshiva told me to stress schar much more than onesh.

3 year olds don't need to hear how Achashverosh killed Vashti. That's just my opinion.
I would be happy if they didn't start teaching parsha to kids until they were a bit older and even though passing over certain concepts until they can be understood better.

My 3 year old just went after supper and climbed up to the sink, took the dish soap, went to the toy room and started "washing" all of his toy dishes...

Nice. ☺ The kids were really quiet one morning this week so My wife went to check what's happening she finds them sitting on the floor in the kitchen with cereal all over and my 3 year old is scribbling on a paper. My wife asked what he is doing and he responded he's writing a not-mitzvah note for my 2 year old bec he wasn't helping him clean up the cereal he (the 3 year old) spilled.
