Overview

Grief is a very puzzling process and not easily understood. Even most adults don't understand it, so how can we expect children to understand their feelings if their Mom, Dad or another loved one dies.

"Let's Get A Grip on Grief" doesn't attempt to explain death or why a loved one had to die. Instead, it relates what happens next and validates the emotions a child may experience.

Illustrated and geared for the young child under 9 years old, "Getting a Grip on Grief" is the sister book to "Let's Get A Grasp on Grief," which was written to help older children (9 years +) to understand some of the confusing emotions they will be experiencing.

Both books have a section for parents, which provides tips on how they can help a child deal with loss. Moreover, "Let's Get A Grip on Grief" can simply be used as a guide. The pictures can be shown and utilized as a jumping off point to start a conversation that is personalized to the child's situation.

Ellen Gerst, a grief and relationship coach and former widow, has written several other books on grief, including: Suddenly Single: From Loss To Renewal; Understanding Grief From A to Z; 101 Tips and Thoughts on Coping with Grief; and 25 Inspirational Thoughts on Coping with Grief.

All her books are formatted in concise and easy-to-read nuggets, ideal for the mourner with a limited attention span. Find books on Amazon or via her website at
