Descripción

A compassionate resource for friends, parents, relatives, teachers, volunteers, and caregivers, this series offers suggestions to help the grieving cope with the loss of a loved one. Often people do not know what to say—or what not to say—to someone they know who is mourning; this series teaches that the most important thing a person can do is listen, have compassion, be there for support, and do something helpful. This volume addresses what to expect from grieving young people, and how to provide safe outlets for children to express emotion. Included in each book are tested, sensitive ideas for “carpe diem” actions that people can take right this minute—while still remaining supportive and honoring the mourner’s loss.

Introduction

If you are reading this book, you are making a commitment to help a grieving child. Perhaps you are a parent who is not only mourning the death of your spouse, but who is also concerned about helping your children mourn well. Perhaps you are a teacher with a student who has experienced the death of a grandparent, parent, sibling, or friend. Perhaps you work in a hospice or funeral home where you have the opportunity to help children in grief. Whatever your relationship to grieving kids, you are probably asking yourself, What can I do to help?

This book’s 100 practical ideas are a response to that very question. Some of the ideas will teach you the basic principles of grief and mourning. The remainder offer practical, here-and-now tips for spending time with and actively supporting the grieving child. They will help you put your compassion into action. They will help you know what to do when you don’t what to do.

You’ll also notice that each of the 100 ideas suggests a carpe diem, which means, as fans of the movie Dead Poets Society will remember, seize the day. My hope is that you will not relegate this book to your shelves but keep it handy on your nightstand or desk. Pick it up often and turn to any page; the carpe diem suggestion will help you seize the day by helping the grieving child today, right now, right this minute. If you come to an idea that doesn’t seem to fit you or the child, simply ignore it and flip to a different page.
