What do I tell the kids? How do I support them? KidsGrief.ca is a free online resource that helps parents support their children when someone in their life is dying or has died. It equips parents with the words and confidence needed to help children grieve life’s losses in healthy ways.
KidsGrief.ca can help you understand how children (ages 0 to 18) grieve and how to support them as they face the life-limiting illness, dying and death of someone important to them. It also suggests ways to introduce children to the cycle of life and death long before someone they know is dying or has died. KidsGrief.ca learning modules have been developed by a team of experts in grief, and specifically children’s grief, together with people who have experienced loss and supported children through grief.
