This is such an important article bypublished in the Washington Post on July 25, 2017 about what grieving children need – acknowledgment of their loss.

“I hope to spare another kid the bleak silence, the fake bubble of oblivion people seem to want there to protect the kids. That bubble is our wishful thinking. And it’s a dangerous, horrible wish that can leave lasting damage. Loss deserves its honor. Children deserve to be a part of that honor.”

An important read for anyone who is helping a grieving child deal with loss.
