“For many adults the prospect of understanding and supporting a child or teen who is grieving can feel confusing, overwhelming and more”

“…just because children are not able or willing to ask or answer questions doesn’t mean they don’t have a whole lot going on inside their minds and bodies.”

“It is especially difficult for parents and caregivers to resist the desire to take away a child’s pain and to try to ‘make it all better again’. It helps to remember that allowing for emotional honesty and a changed reality can ignite a child’s self-confidence as well as an innate drive to heal and live in hope again.”

“Even though it is impossible to fully comprehend someone else’s experience, your efforts to understand can help a grieving child or teen feel respected, loved, and more confident.”

“Grieving children don’t care what you know until they know you care.”
