Remember Grieving Children This Season

By November 17, 2011Uncategorized

Thursday November 17th marks the fourth annual Children’s Grief Awareness Day.  Mourning children, their friends and encouragers around the nation wear blue that day as a way to show their care and support for children struggling after the death of a loved one.

GriefWorks and ChristianWorks ask you to show your care for mourning children not only on November 17th but well into the weeks ahead.  The holiday season, a typically difficult time for those in grief, can be extremely hard on grieving children and teens.

Unfortunately young people in grief are overlooked for many reasons.  If you know a family struggling with the death of a loved one, make special efforts to include the children and teens in your efforts to help and support the family.

GriefWorks, the free children’s grief support program serving ages 5-18 and their adult family members in North Texas, provides a healing atmosphere for children in grief.  Click here to hear Katie’s experience at GriefWorks.  Mourning children and their families can start their own GriefWorks experience by contacting us at 972-960-9981.
