Death is one of life’s certainties and yet it is also its greatest uncertainty, and children, at a young age, become cognizant of mortality. Some children face significant losses such as the death of a parent or sibling that are dramatic and life-changing.

Conversely, children are still developing both emotionally and cognitively and therefore are unable to express grief in the same way an adult does. For this reason, coping skills are limited and the need for education and guidance is necessary to support a child in identifying and moving through their own complex feelings.
Death itself is complicated. However, awareness of the impact grief has on elder individuals can occur and has the potential for complicated grief. Learn how to understand and provide suggestions for help.
