Grief: Helping Children With Grief
- Children see loss and death in different ways as they grow and develop. Tailor your help according to your child's age and emotional development.
- How you learned to deal with loss will affect how you help your child. Think about what helped you when you lost something as a child.
- Don't try to keep grieving a private affair. Ask child care providers, teachers, and school counselors to help your child express his or her feelings, concerns, and misconceptions.
