Judy Stong Author- A CHILD’S GRIEF: SURVIVING THE DEATH OF A PARENT published

      Judy Stong is pleased to announce the January publication of her second book, A CHILD’S GRIEF: SURVIVING THE DEATH OF A PARENT.  Judy began this book in response to the trauma her family experienced when her first hustand died.  She saw first hand how their father’s death affected her children then, and how it contines to impact their lives today.  Helping a grieving child can be difficult because children cannot always articulate what they feel, and adults are often very deep in grief themselves. 

      Personal interviews with survivors attest to the pain and turmoil of such children.  In addition, Judy gathered data from professional educators, theapists, and socialogists whose body of information bears witnes to the needs of grieving children.  Some facts to consider:

      On child in twenty will lo0se a parent by the time he or she is a senior in high school. 

      Children who had a parent who died suddenly have three times the risk of depression than those with living parents. 

      A CHILD’S GRIEF is a practical and insightful resource for parents, family members, teachers, or anyone helping our most important citizens cope with the grief of loss. 

      A CHILD’S GRIEF: SURVIVING THE DEATH OF A PARENT is published by Beaver’s Pond Press, Edina, MN.  To order visit www.beaverspondpressbooks.com.   The book is also available on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com or from Judy’s website www.judystrong.com
