Sesame Street and Dealing with Grief
« on: January 23, 2017, 02:02:48 PM »
I'm just posting this for others with young children - my grief therapist gave me this Sesame Street DVD for my son and I to watch - "When Families Grieve". So we watched it yesterday. Its admittedly sad but my 5yr old was able to see other young children who are dealing with similar loss. And we talked a lot about his Dad after watching the video- as he continues to feel and express to me that somehow we can bring his Dad back...but I keep explaining we can't : (

That's a great video!

I really love the book the scar. So much that I bought a copy for the grief counselors at hospice and several of them have since bought their personal copies.

Mine were 9 when he died, but I heard off and on since questions about him coming back. They'll be 14 in a couple of weeks and she asked this past October.... They know he can't, but I think just like us wishing they could, our children look for ways they could...
