Drawing from decades of experience as a therapist, Edy Nathan has compiled a list of the top “do’s and don’ts” for parents trying to understand their child’s grieving process. She explains how children grieve differently than adults and shares signs to be watchful for in a grieving child.
Edy explains that during the grieving process, parents need to focus on THEM:
  • Truth: Be honest with your child and avoid euphemisms.
  • Honor: Respect the time your child needs to heal.
  • Emotion: Allow your child to feel full range of emotions.
  • Memory: Work to keep your loved one’s memory alive.
Listen as Edy joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss how to help kids cope with grief.
