Re-grieving as Seasons Change
A video that shows how grief can come and go throughout life.
Grief can come and go throughout life for both children and grown-ups. Sometimes small things, such as falling leaves or flying a kite, can remind us of a person who died, bringing up some big feelings. In this video, Jesse and her mom, Jill, share memories of Jesse’s dad and talk about their feelings as they grieve together.
Watch the video together with children, and remind them (and yourself) that feelings come and go, and that’s okay.
