Young children do indeed grieve.

It is also common knowledge that these children are at a higher risk for depression as they grow. Understanding and Addressing Children’s Grief Issues will help you, as the caring adult, be a guide through this troubling time by helping you understand what the young child is going through and giving you comprehensive techniques to address the situation. This is a time when a caring, unassuming adult can make a positive difference in a young person by fostering growth and by helping them understand and cope with their feelings.

Very good information and ways to work with grieving children. I needed to do a presentation once for hospice workers to help working with children and purchased this to give me some more ideas. Very useful. There are some activities that a caregiver or provider can use with children to help them get through a most difficult and sad time in their lives.
