Helping people of all ages with grief
All of us experience some sense of grief. In our ever changing days/hours, grief is affecting all of our lives. We may have a loss of a loved one, loss of social interaction, a loss of job, and so much more.

Most adults have ways to cope with this, but our children - probably not. They may seem okay, but may not know how to communicate what they are feeling.

Here is a good way for them (and all of us) to express ourselves right now. Grab a piece of paper and a writing utensil. Have them draw a circle or a couple of them. Ask them (or yourself) to draw a face in the circle showing how they are feeling right now. It might be happy, sad, angry, confused, etc. Encourage them to explain why they are feeling that way. This is hard, but just listen. Encourage their feelings, don't dismiss or downplay them.

Now, ask them to draw a happy face (if that was not what they drew). Discuss with them what would make them feel happy. Remember their age and that the request might be undoable right now. But help them think of things they could do that would bring some happy into their life right now. Keep it real and keep it simple. It doesn't take much.

I hope you find this helpful! Take care. Kelly
