November is National Children’s Grief Awareness Month. The Wendt Center has always been committed to educating and supporting grieving children and teens, caregivers, educators, coaches, clergy – anyone and everyone who might touch a child’s life and make a difference. We have always valued and honored the voices and experiences of grieving children and teens.
Our work has shown us that adults often feel ill-equipped to help the children in their lives during times of grief. In 2013, during the closing ritual of our Voices of Now program, we produced the Grieving Children’s Bill of Rights and Adult Pledge, which outlines how adults can support the children in their lives to grieve in healthy and dignified ways.
