In this book, the author gives an understanding and inspiring education on the real meaning of grief. He shows how it brings us closer to our greatest sense of self by breaking and re-creating us. By using his broad pastoral background with helping congregants deal with grief, Rabbi Gewirtz shows us the different ways we block our experience of loss and sorrow, and directs us to meet these feelings fully, with compassion and lucidity and integrate the lessons we learn into a more fulfilling life. He teaches a valuable approach to grieving as a method for positive change and renewal, and provides us with non-denominational advice from a spiritual leader, instead of a psychologist.

After the author lost her husband, it became very clear that each of her three children would grieve the loss in a completely different ways.  One became angry, another was experiencing denial, and the third was consumed with fear.  She immediately determined that each child would need a particular response, not only from her, but the other adults in their lives.  Even though there were a variety of emotions and reactions, she came up with four basics that each child would need, which included routine, love, honesty, and security.  Using these four concepts are absolutely necessary for parents who want to successfully guide their children through the loss of a loved one. What Children Need When They Grieve explores the scope of a child's reactions to death, including grief and fear, advice on how to talk with your child, how to recognize their need for privacy, and what other adults can do to help.
