What to do when a Loved One dies?
When a loved one dies there are many things to be done and it can be an overwhelming and stressful time for the family. Although every family’s situation will be different, this is a general guideline of things to do when a loved one dies.
Ways Children can Say Goodbye
Children are often times the “forgotten grievers” and special attention should be paid to them. Children are remarkably resilient and will be able to handle the news of death once given information in ways that they can understand.
The death of a loved one provides a “teachable moment” for parents to help their children learn effective coping skills that will be useful not only in grief, but in many other situations in the child’s future.
Should Children attend the funeral?
Ask the child if he or she would like to attend the funeral service.
Do this only after having a conversation with the child explaining death and clarifying any misconceptions that she may have had. Do not force the child to go to the funeral if he or she does not want to and confirm for the child that he or she has made a good decision regardless of what that decision is. Once the child has decided to go to the service, walk them through what will happen step by step so that they are not surprised on the day of the funeral. Find ways for children to be involved in the funeral. You can ask your Memorial Coordinator about ways in which children can say goodbye.
