Who Does Your Product Serve?
This book is designed to "help the helpers" -- parents, teachers, day care workers, chaplains, counselors, neighbors, friends -- who may be in contact with a child in grief. Provides activities at the end of each chapter, covers complete age range, offers a chapter on non-death-related grief (divorce, leaving a school/town, military assignments, etc.)
What Is Their Biggest Challenge?
Working through the grief process after a loss through death, whether it's a loss seen as less significant (a pet) or something more devastating (a parent or sibling). All death affects children and every experience of grief is different. Children grieve differently than adults, but they DO grieve. Sometimes we adults don't remember that.
How Does Your Product Help?
It is a resource for parents, family, friends, teachers, chaplains, counselors, anyone who deals directly with children. We all go through grief at some point or another -- usually again and again throughout our lives. When we're in the midst of that grief, it can be hard to seek out a book and start reading about it. However, if the "helpers" in a child's life have access to a resource like this, they can put in the hands of someone in grief when they need it.
