Books for children and those who care for them
Death. Divorce. Grief. Loss.
Tough Topics to Deal With.
If you're researching a story on how kids grieve and how adults can help them
through the grieving process, please take a look at 25 Things to Do When Grandpa Passes Away,
Mom and Dad Get Divorced, or the Dog Dies.
This practical book recognizes two important facts: kids grieve many different losses, not just the
life-changing ones like death and divorce. It also shows us that children need a variety of ways to
express grief. Laurie Kanyer, who works with families where death, divorce, and homelessness
are all too common, describes the grieving process and outlines activities that help bereaved
children. She explains the value of each activity so that parents and caregivers can select the
activities appropriate for a child's age, the kind of loss and the
child's stage in the grieving process.
In 2010, the continuing military deployments of parents made 25 Things to Do When Grandpa Passes Away, Mom and Dad Get Divorced, or the Dog Dies one of the best-selling Parenting Press titles. Hundreds of copies at a time were purchased by such programs the Military Child Education Coalition, a nonprofit which works to ensure educational opportunities for all military children affected by mobility, family separation, and transition, and Navy Safe Harbor, the lead program in providing non-medical care for injured or ill Coast Guard and Navy members and their families during recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration.
