Losing someone you love is difficult at any age. This is especially true for teenagers who are already dealing with the trials of puberty and growing up. They may find their emotions difficult to understand and may not have the coping skills just yet to deal with loss.

 

As parents, it may be difficult to know how to support them. You can’t take away their pain, but you can show them they’re not alone and that there are people who care about them. This can help make coping with the loss a little easier.

Knowing how grief affects teenagers is the first step to helping them cope with their loss.
