Childhood And Grief
A child's social development can be affected by bereavement. They may display immature behavior, conduct that is opposite their usual behavior, mood swings, and more. As an example, a child might become sullen and withdrawn – when they were previously gregarious and popular – following the death of a loved one.
At American Heritage Cemetery Funeral Home Crematory, we are committed to providing quality care as a family owned funeral service. We know all too well that children are often involved when the death of a family member occurs. For adults and children, dealing with grief can be difficult, at best. We are here to help you and your children every step of the way.
About Childhood and Grief
A child experiencing grief due to the loss of a loved one needs a lot of things. If a child is having particularly difficult issues with loss and grief, certain signs and symptoms may be apparent. Some of these can include the following:
- Acting much younger or immaturely for a prolonged period of time
- Extreme fear of being alone
- Loss of appetite
- Inability to sleep
- Loses interest in daily events and activities… and more
It is important that, in addition to dealing with your own grief after the loss of a loved one, you assist a child in dealing with their own grief. This can be a tall order in many cases, but it's necessary as a parent or guardian.
