Looking for a way to have a conversation with your child or teen about the loss of a loved one or something special to them? Written by an expert in sociology and veteran educator, these journals were created to assist children and teens in expressing themselves and reflecting on an unexpected traumatic life experience. The journals may be helpful to children and teens who are going through counseling or talking with an adult about their feelings. Grief and loss are universal. Many situations can be devastating to children and teens, including the death of a loved one; the deployment of a family member; the incarceration of a loved one; losing a home to a natural disaster; or the loss of a pet. Our journals can help children and teens sort out and come to terms with their varied emotions.
