Grief and tragedy for children is a difficult and an unpleasant situation. Grieving or mourning children are likely to feel different than others and very alone. They may conceal deep emotional distress, pain and fear. Children express grief in different ways than adults do. They tend to fluctuate in and out of intense emotions, rather than remain in sustained periods of depression as many adults do. Many grieving children experience regression, temper tantrums, fears, and mood swings. Grief could be triggered by death of a loved one or even a even a cherished pet.  For many children, their first real experience with loss occurs when their pet dies.

When a child loses a loved one to death, the loss can have a profound effect on that child lasting the rest of his life. For most children, death is a new experience. And like all new experiences, the unknown can be confusing and frightening to them. Young children may not understand what death really means. Many young children might see death as temporary and reversible, like cartoon characters who die and come to life again. Older children think more like adults about death.  When a loved one dies, children need consolation, love, support, and affection. A child who appears to be overwhelmed by their grief may require professional guidance.

Some of our educational books and videos address the fundamentals of childhood grief, mourning and tragedy while others deal with more advanced grief management problems and offer solutions. Our Childhood Grief Management Resources Store has lots of books and videos here to help manage childhood grief and tragedy.
