When a child has just lost a parent, a sibling, or other loved one, what can we say?  How can we do the right things without adding to the child's sadness, confusion and grief, especially when we are grieving, too?   In clear, concise language, Dr. William Kroen offers comfort, compassion, and sound advice to any adult who is helping a child cope with death.  Combining his experiences and information from the well respected Good Grief Program at the Judge Baker Children's Center in Boston, Massachusetts, he explains how children from infancy through age 18 perceive and react to death.  He offers suggestions on how we can respond to children at different ages and stages, and describes specific strategies to use in order to guide and support them through the grieving process, from the first devastating days through commemorating the loved one and eventually moving on with life.  This book also includes a list of recommended organizations and additional readings.

The author has shown many times over, through decades of work with the dying and their caregivers, that the Buddhist approach to death can be of great help and understanding to people of all backgrounds. Ever since she was inspired by traditional Buddhist teachings, her work has provided a source of knowledge for people who are facing their own death, in charge with a dying person's care, or desiring to explore and study the power of the dying process and its transformative ability and nature. With her direction, we confirm that we can access and connect with the strength inside us, and that we can also help do the same with others who are suffering.

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.

Watching a child grieve, and not know what to do is a profoundly difficult experience for parents, teachers, and caregivers.  Yet, there are guidelines for helping children develop a lifelong, healthy response to loss. When Children Grieve, the authors offer a cutting-edge volume to free children from the false idea of "not feeling bad" and to empower them with positive, effective methods of dealing with loss.  Many of life's experiences can produce feelings of grief in a child, from the death of a relative or a divorce in the family to more everyday experiences such as moving to a new neighborhood or losing a prized possession.  What ever the reason or degree of severity, if a child you love is grieving, the guidelines examined in this thoughtful book can make a difference.
