Helping Kids with Grief & Loss


The Long Hill Library is offering a program for parents, caregivers & educators called Helping Kids with Grief & Loss on Saturday, May 6 @ 12:30.

The death of a family member, friend, school mate, or significant person is a lifelong loss for children & teens. It is natural for kids to miss the person who died and to experience confusion and grief. Grief may come and go with different levels of intensity for some time after the death.

It's challenging for parents and caregivers to know what to do, what to say, and how to help children who are hurting. Grief reactions are varied, wide ranging and unique to each person. This program, for adults, will provide useful information on how to help a grieving child or teen; and provide you with understanding and compassion for kids dealing with grief.
