One in 10 children in your school will experience the death of a parent or guardian before reaching the age of 20. When a loss occurs, do you know the best ways to help?
The New York Life Foundation, with assistance from Scholastic Inc., has developed a newChildren and Grief site to help educators and other adults guide children and teens through their bereavement—whether they have lost a parent, close relative, or school community member. It includes:
- How to React When a Death Strikes the School Community
- Leading Children Through Their Grief: Downloads and Guides
- Ways to Commemorate a Loss: Memorials, Sympathy Cards, and More
When someone in your school community experiences the loss of a loved one, we hope that these materials will give you and others the know-how to confidently nurture, comfort, and guide students through their grief.
