Do's and Dont's for Friends of Bereaved Parents
Developed for the J.O.S.H. Foundation, this slideshow and pamphlet combination serves as a gentle assistant to friends of those who have lost a child. So many times, family and friends do not know what to say or do when someone close to them experiences a loss as tragic as that of a child. Many offer a simple, "He's in a better place," or, "You have other children." Instead of helping, those comments can harm the delicate state of a bereaved parent.
