#25 – How to help kids deal with death and loss — Parental As Anything ABC Podcast

Telling a child someone they love has died will be one of the toughest things you’ll ever have to do.

Grief counsellor Karen Ferry explains why talking to kids honestly about death and helping them navigate their feelings will mean way more to them than putting on a happy face and pretending everything is fine. And you’ll meet Maddie Cross, a mum who had to support her children while coping with her own unimaginable grief after her youngest son died.

This episode includes a discussion about how to talk to children about suicide. For support contact Lifeline Australia on 13 11 14 or visit Beyond Blue.
