When I Miss [insert name], I Have a Plan helps a child process a difficult time of loss in a healthy way. The death of a loved one is painful for everyone, and it can be especially confusing, scary, and upsetting for children. When everyone is grieving, it is critical that children have the opportunity to mourn, too. Our books on mourning introduce the concept of death honestly and simply: respecting all beliefs, empathizing with the range of emotions involved, and providing gentle suggestions on ways to cope. The concepts will be understood in different ways by children of different ages and developmental stages, but our books present those concepts in ways that are appropriate for all ages. These books empower children to create their own plan for when they miss the deceased, teaching lifelong coping and communication skills, and acting as a gentle and thoughtful starting point for discussion. It is essential that a child's early experiences with loss are addressed in a healthy way, and with this book as your guide, your child will learn not only to cope but to grow.
Blueprint it! If you choose to personalize this Have a Plan Book, you can add names, a dedication, photos of the deceased with the child or alone, and/or some real details that are helpful for processing the specific situation. This book not only will comfort and guide your child during this difficult time, but it will also be a beautiful keepsake to honor and remember the deceased.
