Ways To Support Your Child Through Grief
  • Keep family routines going (i.e.keep having dinner, keep schedules the same, go to sports practice).
  • Model healthy grief as a parent (i..e. cry, talk about how you are feeling)
  • Normalize feelings (let your child know it is ok to feel upset, confused, angry, lost, sad).
  • Do something to memorialize the deceased person (do an art project, write a song, lay flowers at the grave site, release a balloon).
  • Assure your child that (s)he is safe.
  • Listen to them.
