I hope through this blog to offer support and further information for bereaved parents, their families and anyone who wants to offer help to those suffering from the tragic death of one of their children.
Some of my views might not sit well with visitors, be assured, I do not wish to impose them onto others simply to state what I found to be helpful and which might help them.
These sources of help will be through recommending books and other media help; other bereavement support agencies and what I have learned from supporting many bereaved parents; and advice to newly bereaved parents that might help them to begin to rebuild a life without their children.
I know that when my daughter passed away the last thing I wanted to do was sit down to read a book. Even if I could have concentrated for long enough to make sense of the words reading was too much of a distraction from my self pitying which for awhile consumed me. Eventually, when I did go looking for books that might help I couldn’t find very much that focused primarily on the loss of a child. Now thankfully many bereaved parents have found writing to be helpful and have succeeded in publishing their stories to help others in the same situation as themselves.
If you go to amazon.com or amazon.co.uk you will find many options both as printed books or ebooks. I hope you find something that helps you.
