Say ‘I Do’ to getting your kids involved in your Wedding Day

Say ‘I Do’ to getting your kids involved in your Wedding Day

It was once tradition for couples to tie the knot before they even thought about having kids. Back then, marriage happened before couples even lived together, and those first post-marriage years were spent in the honeymoon period of new love.

How can I help my child to say goodbye

Whether a friend, family member, or even beloved pet is coming to the end of their life, it can be extremely difficult for a child to both process and cope with. It can be extremely difficult to adults too! I didn’t cope too well when I lost my grandad. There are ways that you can help them to prepare for saying goodbye, if it is likely to occur in the near future, as well as to help them manage should a sudden death take something they love from them. Remember that, to a child, breaking or losing a favourite toy might also bring about feelings of grief in them, especially if they had a deep sentimental attachment to the item.
