The death of a loved one is not the only loss that can cause grief. Almost any significant change or turning point in your life can cause a sense of loss. Positive or negative, big or small, a meaningful loss can bring on the feelings and process of grief.
Some clear ways you, as an adult, can help children deal with traumatic experiences.
Be supportive and understanding. Encourage the person who experienced the loss to accept the grief rather than fight it.
Be willing to just be with the person without doing anything extraordinary. Your calmness and clarity can be very reassuring.
