Lean On Me Gently: Helping the Grieving Child

 Category: Grief

When a death happens in the family, our first thoughts are often of the children. However, we feel at a loss for ways to help children deal with death and with their own feelings.

Doug Manning provides answers and assurances for anyone who is concerned about a child in grief. Doug looks at the grieving family, the grieving child and the red flags to watch for. He also discusses providing a safe place for children to grieve and being a safe person for them to grieve with. A section of tools and resources is also included.

Sitting down to read a book from Doug is like having a conversation with a friend.
