Dr. Roxanne Daleo Offers Tips for Managing Stress and Grief in Children After the Sandy Hook Elementary Tragedy
Date:12/20/2012

Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

Managing stress and grief as a result of crisis, such as the one at the Sandy Hook Elementary School is a challenge, even for the most experienced, trained professionals. Here are some suggestions on how to begin and what parents can do if their child has been effected and is asking questions.

Under normal circumstances, talking to children about death can be a heart-opening experience for both of you; rather than something to avoid. Everyday parents have an opportunity to bring theirchild’s attention to the cycles of life all around us. From the tiniest insect, to a plant, or a fish; everything has a life cycle. Some are very short cycles; other creatures like birds are longer. Animals and humans, usually even longer. Everything is born, lives and then dies.

The natural world is a place to start to develop your child’s understanding of death in the context of life cycles. (See the book LifeTimes: The beautiful way to explain death to children by Bryan Mellonie and Robert Ingpen, Bantam Books, 1983.) to help yourself begin the conversation with your child in a calm and centered way.

Under unusual or tragic circumstances, parents have to go deeper to meet their child’s needs and their own. And to be able to answer their questions, correct misconceptions, ease worries and fears.

When a child’s life cycle is cut short, parents look beyond the physical, to the spiritual, to their faith, to whatever is believed sacred and Divine for ways to explain the inexplicable. What happens after a child dies is a matter of your faith and a parent's belief system.

For those parents who are confronted with their own uncertainties, referring to world cultures may provide a way to come to grips with their own fears; learning from others what they do may provide comforting answers for parents and children. In many places, death is an integral part of life
