When it comes to loss, our children experience a prolonged healing timeframe due to their inability to fully process the events unfolding around them. Their grief often extends into adulthood, and is something they continually revisit as they develop emotionally and cognitively. Lauren Reitsema shares how to walk with your children through their grief & how to talk to kids about divorce in ways that are appropriate for their age. She also discusses how to encourage grief and rebuild trust with a child, to help them develop strength despite the difficult things they face.
