There’s no doubt that this is a difficult topic but because it is so hard to talk about many parents have no idea how to help their children cope with grief, especially if they are also dealing with their own grief.
A lot of the ways grief was handled in our own childhoods amplified trauma instead of healing it. Not talking about our lost loved one or “moving on” can do more harm than good.
Whether your child is mourning the loss of a sibling or a goldfish, there are powerful takeaways in today’s episode to help them process grief.
Michele Benyo is a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, a parent coach, and the founder of Good Grief Parenting. After her 6-year-old son died of cancer, her 3-year-old daughter said, “Mommy, half of me is gone.” This heartbreaking statement focused Michele’s career as an early childhood parenting specialist on the impact of grief on young children, particularly after child loss. Michele equips parents and other caring adults to recognize young children’s grief and to provide the support children need to cope well with any loss. The desire of Michele’s heart is to see families live forward after loss toward a future bright with possibilities and even joy.
