Children grieve just as
adults do. Any child old enough to form a relationship will experience some
form of grief when a relationship is severed. As adults we may not view a
childs behavior as grief as it often is demonstrated in ways which we
misunderstand as "moody", "cranky", "withdrawn"
or other behavioral patterns which do not appear to us to be grief. When a
death occurs children need to be surrounded by feelings of warmth, acceptance
and understanding. This may be a tall order to expect of the adults who are
experiencing their own grief and upset. Caring adults can guide children
through this time when the child is experiencing feelings for which they have
no words and thus can not identify. In a very real way, this time can be a
growth experience for the child, teaching about love and relationships. The
first task is to create an atmosphere in which the child's thoughts, fears and
wishes are recognized. This means that they should be allowed to participate in
any of the arrangements, ceremonies and gatherings which are comfortable for
them. First, explain what will be happening and why it is happening at a level
the child can understand. A child may not be able to speak at a grandparent's
funeral but would benefit greatly from the opportunity to draw a picture to be
placed in the casket or displayed at the service. Be aware that children will
probably have short attention spans and may need to leave a service or
gathering before the adults are ready. Many families provide a non-family
attendant to care for the children in this event. The key is to allow the
participation, not to force it. Forced participation can be harmful. Children
instinctively have a good sense of how involved they wish to be. They should be
listened to carefully.
much does a funeral cost?
A funeral, like any other
service, can have a range of prices depending on the provider. It is similar to
asking "How much does a wedding cost?" Funeral costs are divided into
two categories: services, as provided by the funeral director and funeral home
staff; and merchandise, such as caskets, vaults, urns, etc. The average regular
adult funeral in the U.S. in 2014 was $7181 according to the National Funeral
Directors Association. This price generally includes funeral home staff
services, professional care, use of the funeral home and equipment, automotive
equipment, visitors register, acknowledgement cards, and casket. However, the
price will vary greatly depending on your location, the company that is serving
you and the type of funeral you choose. It is a Federal Trade Commission
regulation that all funeral-related charges be itemized, printed on a general
price list and made available to the public by phone, mail or in person.
Therefore it is easy to comparison shop and prearrange your own funeral, taking
advantage of competitive pricing by providers. To find out how much the funeral
you want costs, you can simply contact your local funeral service provider.
