Many grieving children will do well when grieving.

The normal behaviors for a grieving child are:

  • Sadness
  • Displaying a need for some privacy, during which they will need to sort out their own thoughts
    and put together their understanding of how things have changed in their life.
  • Irritability,abrupt reactions that are new behaviors.
  • Tears, often shed in privacy, when they are sure no one is watching.
  • Activity, a higher levelof activity, that expresses the energy from the complex feelings they experience.
  • Expressions of anger and frustration.
  • Moodiness
  • Clinging, or an unusual need for reassurance.
