A Guide to Children and Grief is your easy-to-use resource for information on children and grieving.
Help for Grieving Children of Any Age
A Guide to Children and Grief provides an introduction to issues common to grieving children.

We All Can Help A Grieving Child
Nearly all of us encounter children as we go through our day-to-day lives. A staggering one in 20 children experiences the death of one or both of their parents before they turn 15. You therefore never know when you may be interacting with a child that needs your help.
This children's grief guide can help parents, teachers, babysitters, nannies, friends, and mentors who provide comfort and support during a child's grieving process.
Why We Created This Book
Though the number of children who are forced to go through a grief process is high, the information and resources for helping those children is astonishingly hard to come by. Valley of Life wanted to help make this important information easily available to those that find themselves in this difficult situation. Help is now available in this easy to read and share guide.
The author, Miri Rossitto, is the owner of Valley of Life, as well as a mother of two beautiful girls. As she's worked and talked with others who have lost a loved one, the topic of children and grief has come up often. This book is intended for those that were looking for help and couldn't find it.

As a nurse who has studied death, dying and grieving I think this book will provide you with some insight on how children think and react to death. I think it may provide you with some good tips on how to help your child grieve.
