Supporting a grieving child
Chapter 3: Funerals, memorials, and other rituals
Taking a break
If Mila tugged her ear, it meant she needed a break from the service and her aunt would take her to another room.
Have a plan in place should your child need a break during the event.
- Check-in with them from time to time to see how they are.
- If possible, arrange for an adult they’re comfortable with (such as a babysitter or family friend) to take them to another room if they need a break.
- This allows you to stay at the service, knowing your child is supported by someone they trust.
