The loss of any relative is terrible. Often our very first experience is losing a grandparent, and this unpleasant milestone frequently takes place when we are teenagers. Teens do not have the exact same emotional resources and life experience to deal with the emotional discomfort of losing somebody as adults do, particularly if they were close with their grandparents.
1. Reassure them that their sensations stand. Let them understand that sadness is regular and tears help us reveal grief. If they aren’t unfortunate, consider verifying that e.g. they didn’t know them well, lived far, and so on
2. Take them to a tranquil location to invest one-on-one time with them. Specific time implies their individual concerns are fulfilled, rather than aiming to talk with several children at differing developmental levels
3. Ask them how they feel about their loss. Hear their feelings and, if necessary, share yours, particularly where doing this verifies their feelings.
4. Use scientific methods, or belief systems, to discuss concepts beyond death. Heaven is simple to speak about however sometimes sounds a bit hollow. Research Conservation of Energy if you desire a more scientific explanation, i.e. simply because we do not see a visible soul at life’s end doesn’t imply it doesn’t take place.
5. Try a basic but comforting method. For instance, a comparison can help: Do your parents love you? How do you know, can you see it? But just due to the fact that you can’t see it doesn’t mean it does not exist. Then, if you think it, say that you think souls exist, and go to a much better place, which’s the charming and caring location where their grandparent is now.
6. Remind them how their grandparents survive through them. Remember, no-one really passes away while ever the love they lived, survives on in the hearts of others.
