One out of seven children will lose a parent before they are 20. The statistics are sobering, but theyalsocall for preparedness. However, professionalsof all types are often at a loss when dealing with a grieving child.Talking to adults about death and grief is difficult; it's all the more challenging to talk to children and teens. The stakes are high: grieving children are high-risk for substance abuse, promiscuity, depression, isolation, and suicide. Yet, despite this, most of these kids grow-up to be normal or exceptional adults. But their chance tobecome healthy adults increaseswith the support of a loving community. Supporting grieving children requires intentionality, open-communication, and patience. Rather than avoid all conversations on death or pretend like it never happened, normalizing grief and offering support requires us to be in-tune with kids through dialogue as they grapple with questions of how and why. When listening to children in grief, we often have to embrace the mystery, offer love and compassion, and stick with the basics.
