EP. 47 Early Childhood & Sibling Loss; The truth about what children need from adults when they are grieving with Special Guest Michelle Benyo
Welcome Back, Parents! Today's special guest is Michele Benyo!
She's with us today to talk about how to help young children with grief, including how young children grieve, the truth about what children need from adults when they're grieving, the fact that childhood is the best time to learn about grief, and specific tips for adults to help young children grieve.
Michele is a mom of two, a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, an early childhood parent coach, and the founder of Good Grief Parenting. After her 6-year-old son died of cancer, her 3-year-old daughter said, “Mommy, half of me is gone.” This heartbreaking statement defined Michele’s life purpose. Her mission is twofold: to help parents through the unimaginable challenges of parenting while grieving the death of a child, and to help parents meet the unique needs of a child who has lost a sibling in the early childhood years. The desire of Michele’s heart is to see families live forward after loss toward a future bright with possibilities and even joy.
