By Leah Brignall

It can be very difficult to help children cope with and understand loss and death. Separation from loved ones can be frightening for them. The book The Invisible String, by Patrice Karst is a great tool to help children feel comfort. The book explains that there is an invisible sting that helps connect loved ones even when they are not near. Not only can this apply to death, it could also help a child who has a loved one move or deploy, or who has fear of being without a parent. Having a book like this can help start a conversation to help the child feel safe. For further help, it doesn’t hurt to see a counselor and get some parenting support.
