Podcast Episode 282: How to Help Children Deal with Loss

Uncategorized | Leave a Comment

In the Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy

 

In this episode, we discuss the keys to helping children who’ve recently lost a loved one.

 

Talk to them about what happened and what’s going to happen next.

  • Explain to them their loved one’s last breath on Earth is their first breath in Heaven.
  • Let them know they’ll be sad for a while, but the pain will go away.

 

Help fill in the gap.

  • Teach them things their loved one would have taught them if they were still around.
  • Let them know you’re there for them.

 

Don’t be afraid to ask them how they’re doing.

  • Ask them if they think about their loved one.
  • Tell them how their loved one impacted your life.

 

Tune in to hear what Andy recently said to two children who lost their father.
