Grief is one of the most common shared human experiences and yet is still such a difficult topic to address and process.
Teen grief can be extra challenging for all parties involved. Grief is heavy, it’s complicated, and for teens there is the added layer of their developing brains which play a role in decision making and judgment. Teens have a tendency to go inward with feelings and oftentimes even isolate. I have a special place in my heart for this age group, as they go through so much on a daily basis. Be patient with them, it can feel incredibly overwhelming.
