Children experience the same range of emotions as adults, but because they are still developing cognitively and emotionally, they do not grieve in the same way. Children tend to grieve intermittently, or in small spurts, for a longer period of time. Children need assurance and guidance from parents and caregivers, as well as assistance in identifying their complex feelings. For children, grief issues are likely to resurface throughout their growth, and children are apt to continue to process their grief at many different ages. Mood changes or feelings of grief, even several years out from the event, are a common part of adapting to life without someone and to the changes that come with that person's death. As children develop mentally and emotionally, they may need further education, support, and patience from parents and caregivers to assist children as they adjust to the changes.
