Grieving Children

Children also experience the same emotions like adults. It is good for children to grieve and express their feelings instead of bottling it all up. Children are endowed with abundant positivity, which helps them cope much faster than adults and move on in life. Yet, if some continue to feel depressed, experience mood swings and portray other visible signs -sleeplessness, lack of interest, loss of appetite - medical advice and counseling can help children sort out their feelings.

Talking to children offers them comfort and security, while also allaying any fears due to the loss of a loved one. It is important to treat children with patience and care and not criticize them as it might only precipitate their anxiety and insecurity during a testing time.
