Helping Your Child Cope with the Loss of a Sibling

As anyone who has suffered a loss knows, the grieving doesn’t end when you leave the funeral home. This fact goes for children as well, who can struggle to understand and cope with death. If you have a child who recently lost a sibling, then watch this video for guidance on helping her cope.

Speaking with your child and offering a listening ear are important for providing her with grief support. Also, be honest about what happened, answer her questions directly, and let her know that’s it’s okay to cry.
