Advice For Children Who Are Grieving

As we countdown the days until the release of Professor Child’s new film “Children & Grief”, we are bringing you advice from the children who participated in the film.

Today’s advice comes from Alex, age 14, whose brother died after being hit by a texting driver.

“Advice I would give when you’re confronting someone with grief is not to come on too strong you know, they just had someone die and it might be like a year after the person died and it still feels like a day, it just happened. Some people can say that you’re using the death for an excuse but that doesn’t, it’s not cool. A lot of the therapist people I went to, like at hospice, are really nice I don’t remember really what they said, but they helped a lot.”

Thank you Alex, for sharing your story.
