Fireside Books The Grieving Child: A Parent's Guide

Explaining death to a child is one of the most difficult tasks a parent or other relative can face. This book offers practical, compassionate advice for helping a child cope with the death of a parent or other loved one. Parents of children from preschool age to the teen years will find much-needed guidance, covering: helping a child visit the seriously ill or dying; using language appropriate to a child's age level; selecting useful books about death; handling especially difficult situations, including murder and suicide; deciding whether a child should attend a funeral. With a new chapter devoted to the special issues of the bereaved toddle, this book provides invaluable suggestions for dealing with a child's emotional responses (including anger, guilt, and depression) and helping a child adjust to a new life.

This was a good book with a lot of ideas in dealing with children. A little redundant with her advice at times but as a whole a lot of good advice. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a hard time talking about death with their children.
