Too many of us have recently faced the
difficulties of explaining grief and loss to our children. We found that we share many questions: What should we do or say as parents when someone we care about has died? What are age appropriate responses in children? How do we foster emotional and spiritual healing? When is it appropriate to reach out for additional help?
If you are a parent or grandparent struggling with these same questions we hope that that you will join us for a one-night workshop on Thursday, January 31 at 7:30pm in Wilton Hall, Monroe Congregational Church, with Pastors Jenn Gingras and Andrew Courtney. They will share highlights from Theresa M. Huntley’s “Helping Children Grieve”, including discussion on how children (up to age 18) understand death, what to avoid in your responses, behavioral changes that may happen and how to engage in teachable moments.
