Children’s grief awareness is something I like to support. Grief Encounter an amazing support charity were featured on TV today. I met the founder members at a bereavement conference many years ago and salute the work and what they have achieved to date.
If you have children who are going through bereavement please do not let them struggle, seek support and counselling there is help and advice available and as I have said before there are many great books which can help explain in appropriate language how to deal with their feelings.
Keeping their loved one’s memory alive is imperative as opposed to avoiding talking about their lost relative. The process for everybody is different and if, as a parent you are dealing with your own grief as well as comforting a child it is not easy.
