Getting Through Grief

Getting over your grief isn’t easy. Sometimes the emotions continue for years. And during this time, we are expected to be the best parents or grandparents.

Here are a few tips on handling loss and getting over your grief.

Take care of yourself as well as the kids. Show respect for yourself. Walk, jog, do yoga, meditate. Take time for long, hot baths and adult conversation.

Solo Parenting/Grandparenting

Seek support from groups. Sharing your story with others helps normalize your situation. Only after receiving support and learning what you can change can you help your children or other loved ones.

Reassure your children. Remind them that they are not responsible for the death or divorce of your spouse.

Don’t dump. Work through your own emotions. Avoid dumping them on your children or other loved ones.
