A touching, emotionally moving account of what Julia and her two children went through when they lost their husband/father on 9/11. This book is written with such fine sensitive detail that the reader is allowed to share the many emotions and difficulties suffered by this woman and her two children. A moving account that touched my heart and brought new perspective about that dreadful day when the World Trade Centers were destroyed by the terrorists.Was this review helpful?

Julia Rathkey opens her heart and shares with us, all that she has learned from her personal tragedy on 9/11. She instructs us on how, through her family's own journey through grief, she has discovered four essentials: routine, love, honesty and security. Julia explains how vital each of these essentials are in helping a child cope with their grief. She offers a personal account of how difficult it has been for herself and her children in dealing with the sudden loss of a beloved husband and father. This is a courageously honest account of a family's personal tragedy and a mother's search to find a way to help her children grieve. 'What Children Need When They Grieve:The Four Essentials: Routine, Love, Honesty, and Security' is an invaluable tool for anyone who is looking for help to make it through the darkest moment of a family's life.Was this review helpful?
