10 Steps To Grieving The Death Of A Parent

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When we lose a parent, especially when we are adults ourselves, the loss can be, in a sense, “discounted.” That is, it is such a natural course of events that somehow we are supposed to be immune from grieving the loss. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our parents will always be our parents. And no matter our age when we lose them, our grief is real and should be acknoweldged and respected. If one or both of your parents have died recently, or even not so recently, there are steps that can be taken to help you through the grieving process. Alexendra Kennedy covers this process beautifully in an article, which you may read here: “Ten Steps to Grieving the Loss of a Parent.”
