How Children Can Cope With Death and Other Kinds of Loss
The purpose of this information is to help you better understand the needs of children who are experiencing loss. It is mostly about loss through death – that of a parent, grandparent, other close relative or friend. Some losses will be short lived, but generally the grieving experience, even for children, has deeper effects and lasts longer than most people realize. At a time of loss, children need the support of a caring adult, usually a parent.
