Shownotes

November is National Children’s Grief Awareness Month.

1 out of every 20 children age fifteen and younger will experience the loss of one or both parents (www.childrensgriefawareness.org). 

I can’t imagine the statistics for the past two years as we continue grapple with the fall out from the pandemic.

In this episode, I interview Jenny Lisk, mother of two who lost her husband to brain cancer.  Jenny was not only left to care for her two young children alone. But she also had to devise a strategy to help her children through their grief while managing her own.

Two ways she worked through her own grief was by starting The Widowed Parent Podcast and writing her book, Future Widow. 

“Grief support is like swimming lessons” ~ Jenny Lisk

Takeaway

  • Be honest with your children
  • Hire a therapist
  • Connect with others who are grieving
