I am writing a piece about talking to children about death - of a grandparent or other significant person in their life.
Here's how you can help:
1. Have you had to shepherd your child or grandchild through this? Any anecdotes about what worked/didn't work? I'm looking for picture books for young children but also degrees of realism with teens. Any advice you have.
2. Do you know of anyone currently in this position? Ie a grandparent with a terminal diagnosis who might be willing to talk to me about what they are doing? I know it's a big ask, but we don't get this perspective ever in articles like this - just the odd mention of memory boxes or letters - and I think it would be really helpful to have this voice in the discussion.
Thank you very much for your help.
Please email me at [email protected] if you have any ideas.
