Death and helping a 4 yr old and 10 month old, and preemie deal with this?
Would like some advice on things I should be doing to help 4 yr old deal with death of great grandpa?
Thanks and God Bless,
DD has lost 4 grandparents and greatGP since she was born. The last was in October. She was fine with it really. My cousin was living in my grandmother's house for a while until we got it cleaned out and we would go and pick her up and DD would say, "lets got to dead grandma's house" She will occasionally tell stories about "dead" grandmother.
Oddly, the other day she watched a commercial for edible arrangements and said. "We had those at my other grandma's when she died." She was 18 months old then. I don't know how or why she remembered that, but she did. It is not something I would really have talked about with her.
I am sorry for your loss. I am quite close to my great grandfather. He is 92 and I treasure every minute with him. Hugs to you and your family.
