Two of my grandchildren who are 8 and 9 have lost their daddy.
( Their was ongoing battles and no co parenting well between the parents and my daughter has them full time now but they did live with dad for 4 years ) .
When we told them, it still haunts me, he was their superman and altho the whole situation was a difficult one, their sobs I will never forget and the youngest ones prelongated noooo.
I just find it so hard for them and the youngest is really struggling and has melt downs that in all my years I've never seen before. She is confused and has challenges processing it all bless her. The eldest struggles in her own way and outwardly is coping better. I think the transition from dad's to mums and dad gone is just so much at tender ages. They were and are young carers for both parents as well.
Mummy has helped them do a memory box and their daddy's mum had a necklace done with dad on it for them and turned some of his clothes in pillows for them.
They've a half sister who helps too as she is 17.
I know waves of emotions will come but any ideas on all of this, particular when the wee one has a full on melt down on please.
