Publisher's Description

One out of seven children will lose a parent before they are 20. The statistics are sobering, but they also call for preparedness. However, professionals of all types are often at a loss when dealing with a grieving child. Talking to adults about death and grief is difficu< it's all the more challenging to talk to children and teens. The stakes are high: grieving children are high-risk for substance abuse, promiscuity, depression, isolation, and suicide. Yet, despite this, most of these kids grow up to be normal or exceptional adults. But their chance to become healthy adults increases with the support of a loving community. Supporting grieving children requires intentionality, open communication, and patience. Rather than avoid all conversations on death or pretend like it never happened, normalizing grief and offering support requires us to be in tune with kids through dialogue as they grapple with questions of "how" and "why." When listening to children in grief, we often have to embrace the mystery, offer love and compassion, and stick with the basics.

    I found this book very helpful in dealing with children during a time of loss. It gives practical help and good examples which gave more understanding. Having more understanding to help children at a time of loss was really important and this book help with that. The one area in the book that might be lacking is that it doesn't give any real spiritual guidance in dealing with grief. To be fair that is not the intent of the book. We bought 6 of these books for other family members because we found it so helpful with our young children when we lost their dad.
