We never expect children to die, even when they are seriously ill. This program will discuss ways to talk about sibling death with children in an honest and age-appropriate way.

We never expect children to die, even when they are seriously ill. It can be hard enough navigating our own feelings when a child dies, let alone trying to explain that unexpected loss to a child. Most adults tell children that people die “when they are very, very old” and that they won’t die “for a long time.” When a child dies, that narrative is disrupted for everyone. When the child who dies was a sibling, it can be even harder for the child to understand their feelings. The child can be very confused, and the grief can be overwhelming. This program will discuss ways to talk about sibling death with children in an honest and age-appropriate way.

This event is in honor of National Brother and Sister Day

Today is dedicated to the people who (we hope) made your childhood memorable — your siblings. They’ve been there for you during the good times. And they haven’t left your side through the bad (even if they created it by getting you in trouble). Of course, there were probably times where you couldn’t stand the sight of each other. What siblings don’t get into fights? Still, National Brothers and Sisters Day is the day to reflect on the best times this May 2.

Brothers and sisters know you like no one else ever will.
