As part of a multi-year partnership, Dougy Center and KinderCare Education published a book, The Youngest Grievers: A Guide for Loss & Life Transitions.
When a loss happens, whether through the death of a family member, divorce, military deployment, or other reason, young children can feel the effects deeply. The support of a compassionate and informed adult can help these kids thrive, even in the midst of significant changes in their family and lives.
The Youngest Grievers provides simple, accessible information and tools to thoughtfully and meaningfully care for grieving children. It focuses primarily on infants through preschoolers, and also offers self-care tips for their adult caregivers.
KinderCare Education has made this important book available nation-wide at their many early childhood education centers.
