Youth and Children's Grief
(Dr. Alan Wolfelt, PH.D. , C.T., centerforloss.com)
Adults grieve. So do children. As an adult or child, experiencing grief means to "feel," not just to "understand." Anyone old enough to love is old enough to grieve. Even before children are able to talk, they grieve when someone loved dies. And these feelings about the death become a part of their lives forever.
