How can we help our children cope with death or illness in the family, or the grief and loss that comes in its wake?
Silke Rose West has been present for families in her school who lost children, mothers, and other family members. She has been at the side of elders as they died. Through it all, she has helped siblings, parents, her kindergarten class, and the entire school community reckon with the pain and love that resides in death.
In this episode, she explains how storytelling helped her - and can help you - guide children and families through those difficult moments, and give them hope.
