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?”


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.

How is this different from grief counseling?
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, death, and loss.

I'm scared of death myself, will this help me? Will I really be able to help my child?
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. 

I'm not sure I'm ready to dive in yet, where can I learn more?
