Making a Child's World Whole Again

Explaining death to a child is one of the most difficult tasks a parent or other relative can face. The Grieving Child offers practical, compassionate advice for helping a child cope with the death of a parent or other loved one. Parents of children from preschool age to the teen years will find much-needed guidance, covering:
- Helping a child visit the seriously ill or dying
- Using language appropriate to a child's age level
- Selecting useful books about death
- Handling especially difficult situations, including murder and suicide
- Deciding whether a child should attend a funeral
With a new chapter devoted to the special issues of the bereaved toddler, The Grieving Child provides invaluable suggestions for dealing with a child's emotional responses (including anger, guilt, and depression) and helping a child adjust to a new life.
