Grief is normal and natural so why is it so hard to know what to do? 

Whether you are a parent, a teacher or otherwise involved with children you will know that sinking feeling when questions are asked about sad and painful feelings. Often we are left struggling for the right words, not least because we ourselves don't know what to do either. 
 
Child bereavement hit the headlines recently when HRH Prince William quoted and echoed his Mother, Princess Diana when he described "grief is the most painful experience" 
 
Whether the child in your care has been bereaved, is about to face bereavement or they have experienced other significant emotional losses following divorce, house moves, changing school, being adopted, fostered, bullied or a myriad of other losses having the correct information at your fingertips can make a signicant difference to their progress and well being.
