As a parent, you simply can’t imagine life going on without your baby. Yet the faces of your other children are looking at you. They want guidance on how to go on with their lives and they may need help.
How You Can Help Your Surviving Children
The needs of every family, and every family member, are different after the loss of a child in a Quad Cities car crash. However, as you and your children grieve it is important to:
- Get your children the help they need. This is purposefully vague because what “the help” may be is so heavily dependent on your child’s age and personality. Some children may need to get back to their regular schedule as soon as possible, some children may need extra time with you, some children may need professional counseling, and many children will need all of these things.
- Give yourself time to grieve. While much of your grieving will be done in front of your kids and as a family, it is also important to allow others to help you with your children so that you can take a little bit of time to grieve privately.
- Make sure your children feel safe. Their whole world has changed and they may be frightened.
Additionally, you can allow your children to see you pursuing justice by holding the person who killed your child accountable.
