Death and Child Grief The earliest memories of death and its imprint on the young mind can be quite scarring and traumatic for children. Depending on the level of mental development some children cannot even fathom what death itself means much less grasp the grief that is associated with it. Eventually as the age of reason comes, the emotional aspect of missing someone correlates with the intellectual reality of what death and missing that someone means in regards to life. It is within that age of reason that parents or other family members need to address death with children. Obviously
Everyone deals with death in their own way, but children are a bit different. Most young children really don’t understand death, even those who do can have a hard time dealing with their feelings. It’s important to make sure kids are getting the care they need during a time when they lost someone close to them. Child grief and bereavement counseling is something that any parent should seriously consider. This is a great solution since most kids don’t want to talk to their parents or other family members about their feelings. Most parents don’t even know what questions to ask
