Grief is a healthy process of feeling comforted, coming to terms with a loss, and finding ways to adapt.
Forced cutsiness rarely works any better than forced humor.They store them up and “replay” these statements to themselves.Practice giving your child words of encouragement throughout each day. Use what is called descriptive praise to let your child know when they are doing something well.It’s fine if they don’t know what’s going on, but don’t forget for a minute that their brains are whirring behind the scenes, trying to figure it all out. And, at all expenses, avoid “ah, gee, misters.” Don’t ever put a “child character” into your story–anymore than you would “an American character” or “a female character.” Create a fully realized individual who has a reason for existing beyond mere accessorizing.In writing child characters, the same rules apply to their dialogue as to the use of any kind of dialect: don’t abuse it. Adults often tend to lump all children into a single category: cute, small, loud, and occasionally annoying. Remember yourself at the age of your child character?“Out of the mouths of babes” may have its moments of truth.
