Its natural to want to help our children in any situation, to comfort, explain or help them to understand what’s happening and why they may be feeling sad. Although death is something we are all aware of it’s not something we particularly plan for. It can come as a shock, leaving us unprepared for the many of the questions, feelings and emotions that children have during this time.
The ‘Our Year Since…’ animation series has been developed to help both parents and carers support children when bereavement happens.
The ‘Our Year Since…’ series is a set of short animations that follow the main character Gemma, as she shares and discusses the year since the death of a family member. The story starts from the early days, through to the funeral and beyond. We see how other members of the family cope too. Each step is broken down into parts to show how Gemma has coped with and come to terms with her loss and the grieving process she goes through. She talks of help from her school counsellor and how it’s ‘normal’ to feel sad.
The ‘Our Year Since…’ DVD series has many benefits to support parents and carers by:
