Change and Loss activities
- When your child or you experience a change (good or bad) talk about it together and how it makes you both feel. Explain that change is everywhere around us, that it is part of life and sometimes we cannot do anything about it.
- The biggest change anyone has to deal with is the death of someone we love. Read about helping children to cope with bereavement here.
- If the topic of death comes up in conversation, talk about it openly and answer your child's questions as honestly as possible.
