Media Questions

If you're considering a feature or a sidebar on grief and coping with loss, here are some questions you may find helpful when you interview Laurie Kanyer, author of 25 Things to Do When Grandpa Passes Away, Mom and Dad Get Divorced, or the Dog Dies.

  • Why do you believe it is so necessary to address childhood grief?
     
  • How does a child feel when he or she experiences a loss? What behavior should a parent expect?
     
  • What's different about how children and adults grieve?
     
  • What are some ways that caregivers can help grieving children?
     
  • Is it realistic to expect children to get over a loss? What will happen to grieving children as they mature?
     
  • Should children attend funerals?
     
  • Why do you believe kids need to express grief with physical activities? Is this also true of adults?
