Summary As much as we'd like to, we can't shield our children from loss. But we can provide them with consolation, comfort, and constructive ways to deal with life's sorrows--encouraging both strength and sensitivity and preventing the problems that can arise when feelings are denied or remain unresolved. We can help children bounce back from loss due to the death of a beloved family member, a divorce, the disabling of a sibling or parent, or saying "goodbye" to a faithful pet--if only we know how. Through captivating stories and thoughtful analysis, Maria Trozzi explains how to handle the difficult job of talking with children and adolescents about loss.
