About the Book
Raising kids has always been a balancing act. When someone in the family dies, everyone’s world is turned upside down. Getting through the pain of your own loss while having to attend to the needs of your kids, who are also grieving, is an incredible challenge.
Parenting Through Grief provides a framework for how to navigate parenting in the shadow of loss and the comfort of knowing you can still parent with confidence and love.
