Children & Grief

When a loved one dies, it can be difficult to know how to help kids cope with the loss, particularly as you work through your own grief. By being open and honest, encouraging communication, and sharing your own feelings, you and your children can cope with painful times and begin your healing journey together.

The following links provide more detailed information on topics related to helping children and teens cope with loss.

Whole Heart Grief & Life Resource Center

Our vision is to inspire a self-care revolution by being a catalyst for healing, touching people’s hearts and expanding their minds as they manage the emotional, social, spiritual, physical, and financial aspects of life and loss. In doing so, our mission is to provide tools to help individuals identify needs, understand options, make positive choices, and navigate their journey through life and loss.

Denise Rollins (Founder)

Denise is a Survivor. For Denise Rollins, life was shattered in 1995, when a drunk driver killed her mother. Denise was devastated and felt she’d “died” in that accident. While feeling sorry for herself, Denise heard her mother’s voice telling her to stop being a victim. That ‘s when she changed her perspective and her approach. Despite later enduring the sudden losses of her son, aunt, and husband, Denise is no longer death’s victim. Instead, she is a Survivor who honors her loved ones by helping others to heal.

Two free grief sessions for our families and monthly grief support group.
