Happy 4th of July my Helping Children Grieve friends!

I really appreciate all that has been shared and the readings.  I think it is worth adding if it hasn’t already been said, that small children more often use symbols to talk about their grief, indirectly.  They might draw a picture of a dog or cat getting hit by a car or squashed by something falling on it to share grief about the loss of a loved one.  I have found that often in their play, kids will.   indirectly express grief.  Being sensitive and paying attention to these clues is important and helpful.
