In Episode 99, we discuss the death of a child, the overwhelming shock it brings to parents, siblings and other family members and we look at ways to cope and rebuild life without them.
One of the most devastating life experiences is the death of a child.
Whether the death was anticipated, as in the case of illness, or sudden, as in the case of accident, homicide or suicide, the loss of your precious child is something no parent expects to endure in their lifetime.
It goes against the natural order of life. A parent is supposed to die before their child or children.
So when a parent is confronted with this overwhelming event, they are shocked and bewildered. They can’t believe this is happening to them.
It wreaks havoc on their family dynamic, their marriage, their worklife, and the relationships they have with friends and extended family.
Not only are they grieving, but their surviving children and the child’s grandparents are also grieving.
They realize they have so much pain inside themselves and all around them.
And it all needs to be addressed.
In this week’s episode, we look at the many aspects of what happens when a family experiences the death of a child and effective coping skills to help them.
Below, please use the Emotional Freedom Technique to help you stabilize your emotions. It has been a great relief for so many during the grieving process.
Bless you my friend.
As you know I am a great believer in the power of the Emotional Freedom Technique.
