Helping Your Living Children With Sibling Grief

This episode was requested by several listeners. When one of our children goes to Heaven, life becomes surreal. We fall down a rabbit hole of grief. But many of us have other living children, so how do we continue to parent them and help them navigate their grief when we're trying to figure out how to navigate our own? 

In this episode I offer some tips and tools to help children of various ages. I cover:


  • Why it’s important to express your grief and emotions in front of the children in your life - and why this isn’t just limited to your own children
  • How your living children may take on overresponsibiity for you
  • Behavioral indicators to watch for
  • Impacts on children who now become an “only child”
  • The importance of routine and structure for younger children
  • Ways to involve your living children in honoring your child in Spirit
  • Support groups for older siblings
  • Honoring your living children’s Soul Contracts


Episode 3: Soul Contracts
