The Importance of Conversation for Children That Are Grieving | Scott Salter

"For a child, grief may resurface as their cognitive ability changes and with life events. Unlike adults, who stay with their grief, children often jump in and out of their grief. This means that they may initially be upset about their loss but may then appear to be fine for a period of time and then may become upset again, and so on. This can be very confusing both for children and the adults who care for them and will need time and understanding to help process their loss. The importance of conversation is integral for children following bereavement. By talking about death - even the most difficult aspects - children are able to understand that this is something they are able to cope with."
