Healing a Child’s Pet
Healing A Child’s Pet Loss Grief: A Guide for Parents has been designed just for you. It will assist you when faced with making decisions to help your child and begin healing the trauma caused by your child’s pet loss grief.
Adding a furry, finned, or feathered friend to your child’s life can be a wonderful teaching experience for them and your family.
Animals are more than pets to children, they are a sibling, a best friend, an adventure buddy and can be the greatest teachers they will ever have.
Children with pets learn responsibility, patience, unconditional love and much more. There will also be a time when your child’s pet will offer a most profound lesson—all living things must die.
Since children are naturally curious and want to know how things work, they will experience various emotions and stages of grief and loss that can be extremely difficult for them to comprehend and challenging for parents to help them navigate.
Author Wendy gently takes parents through this trying time with tools that will help children feel supported in their journey and learn lasting compassion as they heal the pain of loss.
Discover how a companion animal will share these lessons with your child forever—through life, death, and beyond.
