How to Help Your Child Cope With Grief

• Be honest and give accurate information appropriate to your student’s ability to understand and wish to know.

• Provide extra affection and reassurance regarding safety issues as needed. A death may bring up fears about their own health and safety or that of a loved one.

• Give choices, i.e., “would you like to go to the funeral service?”

• Listen! When we show we are interested in their thoughts, youth have a lot to say about death and grief.

• Encourage open expression of emotion through art, poetry and conversation.

• Share your own grief without overburdening your children. It is OK for children to know that you are experiencing and surviving your own grief.

• Continue daily routines for your children as much as possible during this time of change.

• Be patient. Children may take longer than adults to resolve grief. Their processing of it may happen in stages. They often need to ask the same questions over and over.
