Solo parenting babies or very young children can be overwhelming. If you were widowed while pregnant or when your children were very young, how will you explain the loss to your child? Adults grieve differently than children and it is often difficult to know what to tell our children when they ask questions, especially if they are very young.

In this workshop, you will gain a better understanding of child development and signs of grief in children. We will have a discussion on the following topics:

  • Answering children’s questions in age appropriate ways
  • What to do with your own grief if your child’s memories of their father start to fade
  • How to know if your child needs some additional help with their grief

This will be an interactive and informative session for widows with children of any age since we will discuss all developmental stages. I hope you will join us!
