TIPS TO HELP YOUR KID GET OVER PET LOSS
2
A childs best friend is often their pet, and
losing that pet is a heartbreaking experience for
them. Death is very upsetting and confusing for
children, and the loss of a pet is often their
first encounter with it. Although we cant
protect them from having to go through it, there
are healthy and supportive ways that you can
effectively communicate the loss of their pet to
them.
3
Take children into consideration
You will get all kinds of advice from books,
websites, and even well-meaning friends or family
members about how to break the news about the
loss of your beloved pet to your child. However,
you should always take your childs age and
emotional maturity into consideration when youre
thinking about how to tell them about the death.
Allow them to guide you with their questions and
their depth of understanding while youre
explaining it.
4
Always tell the truth
Its important to tell your child the truth when
youre talking to them about the death of a pet.
While you might think its easier to just tell
the child that their pet went to live on a farm
or ran away, its really not. Your child will
still be heartbroken by the loss. When they
eventually find out the truth about what happened
to their beloved pet, they will also feel
betrayed.
5
Allow them to grieve
The grieving process is important to coping. Let
your child grieve the loss of their pet, and
allow them to talk about their pet often. If your
child is grieving silently, share your memories
of the pet with your child and encourage the
child to open up and share theirs. By sharing
your feelings and allowing your children to watch
you grieve, youre setting an example for them
that its okay to grieve and show emotions.
6
Hold a funeral for the pet
Having a funeral for the pet will allow you and
your child the opportunity to grieve openly and
say goodbye. Be sure to include your child in all
of the planning for the funeral. Being involved
will help your child to feel like they are a part
of everything, and it will help them feel more
attached to their pet as it heads to its final
resting place.
7
Help other animals
Get you child to Volunteer at your local humane
society or animal shelter. It will help your kid
boost spirit and help cope with your pet loss
grief.
