When children are involved, it is often very important for them to understand the loss. Rituals can be a vital step in this process. While the extent of childrens’ participation should vary by age and maturity level, you should not shy away from actively involving your child in the creation of this ritual. They may want to tell stories about the animal, sing a favourite song, or even be part of filling the TreeUrn with the soil, baby tree or just watering the tree/plant. Allow and
encourage your child to talk about the loss of their companion. Losing a pet is heartbreaking for all the family, but can be particularly difficult for a child. This book will help any child who is grieving for a family pet who has died.
Lovely idea to help kids and adults when a pet dies. Lots of room for photos and notes.
