It’s at that moment,
when you realize your pain will be shared with someone else.
What do you do?
is never easy to accept.
Sorrow, hurt, and confusion take over and you don’t know what to do. You cry, scream, and search for answers to help cope with the sudden death of a loved one. It’s at that moment you lose it until your child walks in and asks, “What’s wrong?”
Hundreds of questions flow through your mind. How do I explain this? How do I keep it together for my child? What should I say? Help me, please! One thing is for sure, your child may go through a plethora of emotions. It may be anger, sorrow, or silence. They need you.
Allow them to feel and never be dismissive or send them away.
Children should be allowed to feel without believing it’s wrong, or they must always be happy. When they experience sorrow, help them understand it.
You should walk with them, and show tolerance, patience, and understanding while providing words of comfort to help them move toward a place of peace. This will take time. I encourage you to seek help from others, including professional help if needed. You’re not alone and help is always available.
It’s easier said than done.
You’re right, it’s not easy but this book, “My Dad’s An Angel” provides a starting place. It’s a gentle and loving story to help you guide and walk your child through a difficult time.
Read what a mother does to guide her son toward a starting point of healing.
