Reviews - What do customers think about Helping Children Grieve: When Someone They Love Dies (Revised Edition)?
Yes, I recommend this book! Aug 5, 2004
Often times children don't get their questions answered because the grown ups are trying to deal with their own loss and business and arrangements that must be taken care of. It is helpful to know what to say and how to explain things to children. This book helps parents find the words they will need. I also recommend a faith based video for the children, After the Tears, A Gentle Guide to Help Children Understand Death.
Grandparents can talk about death and grief. Mar 10, 2000
When the topic of death comes into the conversation with children, it is very helpful to have thought about what I want to say beforehand. This book gave me the opportunity to be more prepared to answer my grandchildrens' questions about death in a relaxed and confident manner.
an outstanding resource for parents and professionals alike Feb 6, 1999
The author assists the reader in gaining a sensitive perspective as to how children experience grief at different developmental levels. Practical examples and down-to-earth suggestions are made to facilitate the grief process for children.
an excellent resource for families and professionals! Mar 30, 1998
A very sound set of guidelines to refer to when a child has lost a loved one through death. Written at a level that is easy to understand and still covers the topic in adequate depth for any professional. Recommended reading!
