    1 thought on “When Children Grieve: For Adults to Help Children Deal with Death, Divorce, Pet Loss, Moving, and Other Losses”

    1. I read this book with the hopes that I would learn some new things for our foster child in regards to losing contact with parents. I would have liked more on loss, but it was good. It made me feel good about how we handled my children's grief when my mom died. We still have adventures ahead of us in regards to grief and loss, and his book gave me some good tips.

    2. I appreciated the content of this book but felt that it was quite redundant and not as helpful as it could have been. The authors seem to have great personal and professional insight into loss, and yet if one extracted the "meaty" content from this book, it would have been much shorter. I kept hoping for more in-depth insights, and I felt like every time the authors almost got there, they inserted a quote from or a reference to their prior work on grief/loss. It made me feel like I need to go ge [...]

    3. This book addresses myths that stand in the way of healthy grieving including: Myth #1: Don't feel bad. Often well-meaning loved ones tell us to not feel bad when something bad happens in our lives. ("Don't feel bad about grandma's death, grandma had a good long life." "Don't feel bad about your pet dying, we'll get you another pet." "Don't feel bad about your breakup, he/she wasn't right for you."). The authors note how ridiculous it would sound if we were to reverse this sentiment and say to a [...]

    4. This was a good book for a basic discussion of grieving children and the issues they need to cope with in order to healthily deal with their grief. I liked aspects of it, for helping children process their relationships and emotions. My major complaints were:1. It is very focused on death and dying, and not applicable to wider losses and instances of grief. Although moving and divorce, for example, are covered, it is only very briefly and not with enough detail to be really helpful. I read the b [...]

    5. When Children Grieve receives very high ratings on ; I purchased it with the idea that I could perhaps help my 8 year old better recover from the loss of two pets we had to give away, and the long term illness of her grandmother, who is dying of cancer. The book proposes a method for helping children (and through references to the authors' other books) and adults cope with significant loss, ranging from death of a pet, to moving to divorce. Unfortunately, the book suffers from a staggering lac [...]

    6. This was a good book, that had a lot of good info and tools to help kids cope with and understand grief (and for the adults in their lives to understand what kids are going through). BUT it covers so many different types of losses from pets to people to divorce that I think that it is too broad for anyone but a clinician or educator who sees kids that are grieving across different situations. I don't see it as a book that a parent would buy unless they somehow had multiple losses all at once.

    7. Very good book that teaches us how to handle a child's "conflicting feelings caused by a change or an end in a familiar pattern of behaviour." Appreciate this encompassing definition of grief. From the immediate response to recovery and eventually to completion, the writer offer many good tips to how one can help a child get to terms with their losses. The "put your oxygen mask on first" is a good reminder and the clarification of 6 common myths very insightful. The recovery components and emoti [...]

    8. Very good information, but buried in lots of personal experiences and stories. The adult version is a pamphlet and that is about right for the amount of information. In other words, you can skim this one and still get all the information you need. Now incorporating it is another thing, but I'm going to try.

    9. Very good, I would recommend all to read this book. At some point, all children will go through the grieving process, whether it be loss of a grandparent or other family member, loss of a pet, divorce, moving, etc. There is a natural order to grieving and knowing the process will help you to help the child in your life.

    10. This book has some good tips of helping kids face loss. I read this book for a class and probably would not have finished it otherwise. It's got some good information in it, but this was not my favorite book.

    11. very helpful, used in a class offered through my work to help children through loss. helped me to understand more about my own losses. i really think anyone with a loss should read to help their kids as well as the adult version.

    12. My daughter, Melissa, was reading this book for her Masters in Public Health class. It's a really good book with useful information for anyone, really, since we will all deal with grief at some time or another.

    13. A very healing book! I bought it for my kids but ended up benefiting on a personal level. I liked how the authors dispelled grief myths and acknowledged loss as being 100%.

    14. Very good book, Highly recommend reading for any parent. Children go through losses and it is helpful to know how to help them to deal with it.
