Bereavement, loss and separation are three of the most unsettling of emotions that one faces in their lifetime; none more so than when it involves the death of a family member and is experienced by a child.
The healthy negotiation of this process requires time, patience and understanding by all concerned, along with the necessary expression of the bereaved person's feelings.

It is at such times when 'sensitivity' by the adult minders needs to be at its greatest and 'being there' for the bereaved child is of the highest premium.
