A PARENT’S GUIDE to RAISING GRIEVING CHILDREN offers parents wise guidance on virtually every aspect of childhood loss. Besides advice, though, parents will also find solace – and perhaps a measure of hope from this book. Drawing on groundbreaking research into what bereaved children are really experiencing, and quoting real conversations with parents and children who have walked that road, the book will allow readers to see what others have learned from mourning and surviving the death of a loved one.
As Silverman and Kelly explain, “We aren’t going to tell you how you should be feeling, what you should be doing, or how to behave. We know that no two people grieve in the same way or deal with their grief in the same way. We will give you advice, though, and try to point you in directions that might help.”
