About the Grief resources:
Elementary School Aged Bereavement Resource:
When Someone Dies: A Child-Caregiver Activity Book is an activity book for children that also provides valuable information to parents and caregivers about how grief impacts children. Contained within the pages of the book are activities for children designed to help them better express, understand, and cope with their grief. Each page also offers guidance about how adults can connect with their child on the very difficult subjects of death, dying, and bereavement.
Middle School/High School Aged Bereavement Resource:
When Teens are Grieving is based on the award-winning book, Weird Is Normal When Teenagers Grieve, this unique booklet shares teen author Jenny Wheeler’s grief story and validates for teens that they have the right to grieve in their own ways. Professional insights are provided throughout by therapists specializing in grief support.
Parenting While Grieving: As a parent, you don’t have the luxury of worrying only about yourself and your emotional well-being. It is your job, in good times and bad, to attend to the needs of your child as well as your own. Putting your child’s needs first is a no-brainer, so when something bad happens, it feels natural to put your own on the back burner. The purpose of this 20-page booklet is to help parents who are dealing with their own grief balance their needs with the needs of the children in their care.
