Losing a Grandparent – Help your child cope
A hypnotic story to help children when someone they love dies
Is your child confused and distressed following the loss of a grandparent?
Are you wondering how to help them understand and cope?
You may be full of grief yourself at this time (you may like to look at the Death of a Parent download), but at the same time you have to care for and help your child or children who are also bereaved. And this is no easy task.
Small children struggle to make any sense of death and dying, and their endless questions can be very tough on you too. It’s a good idea to answer their questions very directly and plainly, and to allow yourselves to grieve together. But don’t be surprised if children sometimes appear to ‘forget’ what has happened, and play and laugh as if nothing has changed. This is a normal part of dealing with strange and difficult experiences.
You can help them with this by using story-telling, which lets children work through an experience in a detached way.
