This week we are talking about something all of us have experienced, but most of us have difficulty talking about, Grief is a tough subject and it can be even more difficult when trying to manage it with children. After the sudden death of her husband, Ashley Bugge found herself not only raising two toddlers, but planning for the birth of her third child, but also trying to help them live in a world that had been suddenly consumed with grief. Unable to find books that spoke about grief in kid terms, she and her kids wrote a remarkable book, titled “A Hui Hou” - Until We Meet Again. This week, Ashley is here to discuss how to talk to your child about grief and loss, help them understand their feelings and live a happier life.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
*Why it’s important to have honest conversations about grief with your children
*How to make new memories as a family while grieving loss
*Signs a child may be struggling with grief
Ashley also wrote her memoir, “Always Coming Back Home”.
