Thumbs up!

After the death of my husband very suddenly and tragically, this book gave me much guidance and wisdom to grieve with my children. It had chapters pertinent to the different age ranges of my kids and I used several passages almost word for word in explaining my husband's death to our kids. It has now been almost 2 years since his death, and I still refer back to this book as my children grow and face new challenges. I had a huge stack of books for reference and I'm glad this one was on the top! An excellent resource!

I got this book to help my grandchildren understand about loved one dying.

Saving Parents' Sanity

As a counselor and professional speaker, one of the most frequent concerns I hear from parents with bereaved children is, "How do I keep sane and deal with my own stuff when I'm trying to help my kids?" In easy-to-read format, Helen Fitzgerald has provided a real gift.The book is arranged in short "snippets" of information according to topics. The eight-page table of contents will help the reader find what he/she is looking for fast. This format makes the book highly accessible for parents who are most often also engaged in their own grief, and may, therefore, lack concentration for laborious pursuits.Moreover, Helen Fitzgerald does not write as an academic researcher; she writes as one who has walked through the deep valley. Her husband died of cancer, leaving her with four children to rear--and to help through their own grief while overcome by her own.Parents will find encouragement here. Through these pages, parents will learn what vital roles they play in their child's grief process. Whether using correct language, appropriately explaining the cause of a difficult death, making decisions about the child's participation in the funeral, or a thousand other issues, parents (and counselors, too) will find a real friend here.

a perfect book for any adult helping children to cope

As a child therapist I highly recommend this book to professionals and parents. It is a simple to read guide for any adult helping children cope with the death of a loved one. Due to the fact that the adults can also be dealing with the loss it helps to explain how children cope and ways to help them understand and deal with the loss. Children, unlike adults deal with things differently and parents often make huge mistakes in their attempts at protecting them. This book is clear in the ways that are helpful for children. I have used this book in my own practice to help the young patients and their parents.
