Great article on how dads can help their children deal with trauma and overcome grief.

The article, Working Through Trauma: How Dads Can Be Great Guides, by Larry Alton states

“It’s an old stereotype: women are over-expressive while men don’t talk about their emotions. But why is that? It comes down to socialization: from childhood, girls are taught that they should express their emotions (except anger), while boys are taught to suppress their feelings. By the time we’re adults and parenting children of our own, we unthinkingly pass those messages on to our children.

But what happens when the father needs to guide their kids through a traumatic event such a death, divorce, car accident, or natural disaster? As men, we can help our children process traumatic emotions, but it may not come naturally. No one ever taught us how, but we can step up and give that guidance to our children.”
