Few subjects are more terrifying to adults discussing grief and loss to a child. This may be because very few adults have any formal training in understanding how to effectively deal with grief themselves. What little training we have had usually revolves around things that we have heard others say at a time of loss. These things, although well meaning, are not usually helpful.
