Introduction

Welcome to My Grief Workbook. I just want you to know that I had several members of my family die when I was young. I wish there had been a workbook like this for me. None of the grown ups in my life knew how to help me grieve.

When I grew up I decided to write a workbook just for kids who had lost someone close to them. Kids grieve in their own special way; sometimes they laugh and sometimes they play!

I hope that this workbook helps you to keep track of your feelings and memories. I want you to know that there are people in your life who can help you understand all the sadness and pain you feel. This workbook can help them help YOU!
