‘Yesterday You Were Here’ is an important tool that will promote discussion between you and your child.
Helping children understand loss
Grief is a long process that can’t be hurried. The important thing is that you provide an opportunity for your child to talk about their feelings, if they wish, because talking openly and honestly can help them make sense of what has happened.
Imagine grief through the lens of a child
How do you speak to children about grief?
It is ok to admit that you don’t know or that you don’t have all the answers.
Having an aid like the book 'Yesterday You Were Here' helps to open lines of communication about a very difficult subject.
My book will not answer the hard questions - it is a platform to communicate and identify feelings.
