Helping Children and Teens Grieve

The Scarsdale community tragically lost the Steinberg family in a plane crash in Costa Rica on New Year’s Eve. No matter one’s relationship to the family, we all experience the universal feelings that accompany this type of tragedy: grief, fear, and vulnerability. This type of loss is difficult to comprehend, especially for children and teens. With that in mind, SFCS has compiled this guide on how to talk with children and teens about loss.  We trust the attached documents will help in understanding expected developmental responses and strategies for speaking with children.
