Childhood Grieving: how to help your child cope with the loss of a loved one

Posted: Updated:

The death of a family member, friend or other significant person is a lifelong loss for children.         But that first holiday can be an especially hard time to mourn.        

Experts say you can help your child deal with the loss of a loved one by teaching them that death is a part of life. Tell the truth, because hiding information can confuse children, and reassure them that they are not to blame.        

Monitor the child's response over time and check out any concerns with a mental health professional.
