To watch a child grieve and not know what to do is a profoundly difficult experience for parents, teachers and caregivers. Yet, there are guidelines for helping children develop a lifelong healthy response to loss.
In When Children Grieve the authors offer a cutting edge volume to free children from the false idea of "not feeling bad" and to empower them with posotive, effective, methods of dealing with loss.
There are many life experiences that can produce feelings of grief in a child, from the death of a relative or a divorce in the family to more everyday experiences such as moving to a new neighbourhood or losing a prized possesion. No matter the rease or degree of severity, if a child you love is grieving, the guidlines examined in this thoughtful book can make a difference.
