Helping children handle grief

Death is one of those lessons we hope our children will not have to experience early in life. However, given death is an inescapable fact of life, we know our children will eventually need to deal with it. When and how we discuss death with our children will depend on their ages and the circumstances.

Tear Soup is a wonderful children's story about how Grandy deals with her grief by creating a soup. This book is well loved by adults and children alike who have suffered a loss. This book can provide a bridge for discussing death with your children.
