Coping with Memory Clutter
For families coping with the death of a loved one, Dr. Robin says it's important for parents to be aware of their own grieving process because children will mirror their parents' behavior. This makeover is a positive step in the healing process. "What's important is the two of you [have] to really model for him what healthy grief looks like. And at this point, you've been a resilient family, you've survived the unthinkable. And having said that, you need a new image of how one can hold onto someone who is near and dear to them."
