Children and Grief During COVID-19
From the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health:
Many children are facing sudden losses or changes in their normal lives during COVID-19, with schools closing, time with friends getting cancelled, and relatives getting sick and some dying. Children may also be experiencing fear as COVID-19 spreads in their communities. These feelings of loss, change and fear can be very difficult for children, and bring about a grieving process.
Just like adults, children experience grief after the loss of a loved one, or the loss of a routine, friendship, relationship, or feeling of safety. Children may be experiencing grief for the first time during COVID-19, and it is important for parents and caregivers to know how to support them during this time.
