As adults, we know that death and loss is a part of life, but for children it can be a difficult concept to understand. Today Kathy is joined by her friend Kiley Thiel, grief and loss expert, and part of the organization KinderMourn.
Kathy and Kiley discuss a range of traditional types of loss, including the death of a loved one, a friend and suicide. But they also discuss dealing with the loss of normalcy in the time of Coronavirus. They explain how our built in responses are hindered by the precautions we need to take, and explore alternative ways to cope.
PLUS! Kiley tells us about resources and excellent reading materials that can help us support our kids and their understanding of this difficult topic.
