Publisher's Description

Help Your Child Heal From Life’s Losses

A favorite toy breaks . . . . A pet dies . . .

It’s Okay to Cry.

Parents divorce and you’re forced to move . . .

It’s Okay to Cry.

A best friend is hurt badly . . . . A grandparent dies . . .

It’s Okay to Cry.

Look through the eyes of a child again. When something unexpected, disappointing, or traumatic occurs, children feel a very real sense of loss. They may respond with fear or with anger. Most likely they are confused. They have questions they want answered. They need help from their parents or others who care to understand and process their grief.

It’s Okay to Cry offers practical help for parents. It explains the symptoms of loss and unresolved grief so that parents can recognize them and walk alongside their children on the path to recovery.

Well-known and respected author H. Norman Wright speaks to parents with sympathy and reassurance. He recognizes that most parents don’t know how to teach their children to process loss, because often they weren’t taught themselves. His sage advice will give you and your child the comfort and hope you seek.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

“Open the mind of a child and you might expect to find flowers, sunshine, and Sponge Bob. Norm Wright helps us to understand that a child's world is also filled with real hurts and disappointments due to a variety of losses suffered and stored. And, after all, as Charles Dodson (aka Lewis Carol) so eloquently reminds us of adults, "We are but older children, Dear. Who fret to find out bedtime near." The losses of a child's world become the losses of our own psyches. It's Okay to Cry was more than a learning experience. It was necessary therapy.”
- -Mike Klumpp author of The Single Dad's Survival Guide and parent of eight

“This is an incredible ‘gift’ book for all whose lives intersect grieving children. Read it with a highlighter because, sooner or later, you will need the wise counsel that Norm Wright offers. I especially found helpful his suggestions for ‘An Anxiety Fable’ to help children begin to find words for their losses. I will be a better grief counselor for having read this important practical resource.”
--Harold Ivan Smith, CT, thanatologist and author of When a Child You Love Is Grieving

“This is a wonderfully helpful, practical book! It needs to be read by every parent, grandparent, and worker with children so we can help a generation that sees too much, is exposed to too much, and consequently knows or experiences too much--too much of everything and often not enough of their parents.   This is a book that will help you be there for your child in an understanding and constructive way.”
--Kay Arthur, CEO and co-founder of Precept Ministries International

“Every parent who has ever said a few words over a goldfish in a toilet bowl
or felt the numbness of an unexpected diagnosis in a pediatrician's office will appreciate the heartfelt wisdom in It's Okay to Cry. Norm Wright tenderly and skillfully equips parents to help children cultivate a healthy response to life's many pains and sorrows.”
--Lori Borgman, columnist and author of Pass the Faith, Please
