Children & GriefA Course For Parents

How do I talk to my kids about death and loss?

Explaining death and loss to your child can be challenging, especially when you’re feeling your own pain and uncertainty. 

Naturally, the grieving process brings up a lot of questions for parents, such as:

“Is it appropriate to bring a child to a funeral?”

“At what age do children understand death?”

“Do children process death differently than adults?”

“Do teens process death differently than young children?”

“How do I best support my child through the grieving process?”

Dealing with the passing of a loved one is a tough process;

emotionally, spiritually,
and even logistically.

We often feel way out of our depth and struggling to stay afloat amidst the waves of grief.

This is why I created this course alongside Registered Psychotherapist, Colleen Mousseau, so we could help answer your common questions about explaining death and grief to your child.

In this course you'll learn how to:

Skip the mistake most parents make…

The most common mistake parents make with grieving children is not talking about death and loss. 

It’s a natural instinct to shield your child from the ugly parts of life.

You don’t want to upset them or risk traumatizing them. You worry you might make them overly cautious or unnecessarily afraid as they move forward in their life. 

Loss is a part of life and the only way to develop a healthy relationship with any loss is by learning how to talk about it. 

Like so many other forms of parenting, nobody has ever trained you on how to guide your child through such a transformative milestone in their life.

Opening quote
"My Dad has terminal cancer and walking my kids through the funeral (their first) and their grief has been on my heart lately. This course was so helpful to take now before the intense grief that's to come. And something I can easily refer back to later when I need it most. The videos are super short and packed with great info - I especially love the idea of making a hug and marking hot zones on the calendar. This has given me more confidence in my role of supporting/ guiding my kids through their grief. Thanks Tammy!"
Opening quote
"Going through this course I couldn’t help but think how helpful this would have been when we lost my mom. No one ever talked about it and then we found ourselves thrown into it without a single strategy or conversation starter to help us navigate all the emotions. I love that there are actual tools and tips, guides and handbooks to revert back to in this course. This information will be amazing for so many families to have and I’m so thrilled this now exists."

Opening quote
"Even though death is a complicated subject, Tammy’s Children & Grief program provided simple parenting strategies to help our kids with their loss. The program is well laid out and easy to understand. As a father, this course empowered me tap into that softer/feminine side during difficult times. This program also helps prepare adults and help them through the grieving process too, so it really is a win-win for anyone who goes through the course.”


The course is self-paced, meaning you can do it as quickly or as slowly as you like. It’s set up to be delivered over five days with daily emails being sent out with an overview of the topic for that day. In each module, you’ll explore a new aspect of grief and learn a new technique for introducing it to your child. The goal is not to overwhelm you. So the course is paced out so that you’ll have time to absorb and implement what you learn. 

If you have an immediate need for the lessons in the course, such as needing to immediately prepare for a funeral, simply click on that module and away you go. Or, as always, you can book a session directly with me by clicking here

Typically, grief counseling is about working through your trauma — it is a type of therapy that can address the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive responses to loss. This course focuses much more on helping your child work through grief, how to introduce the concept of loss and death, and to help you understand what they might be feeling during these difficult times.

In short, this course is not therapy although the benefits often feel therapeutic. It’s education coupled with proven techniques to help your child develop a healthy relationship with grief.

Our goal is to equip you with the best possible knowledge and techniques so that you can help establish a healthy relationship with loss, death, and grief for your child. The course features advice and techniques developed by a registered psychotherapist (Colleen Mousseau) and professional grief coach (me, Tammy) to help you help your child but it also will benefit you. 

You can explore my blog and YouTube channel for free advice and insights on all things grief, loss, and life. If you have a specific question about the course that hasn’t been answered here, you can reach out to me directly via hello[at]innertravelcoaching[dot]com.

It's natural to feel alone when you're grieving, learn how to be there for your child.
