Helping Children Grieve: Small Hearts, Big Breaks

Kids react to grief differently than adults. Sadly, these times have provided an introduction to grief, perhaps prematurely. We can’t take away the hurt. We can help our children develop lifelong skills for healthy grieving.

It may be winter, but you can still get out and enjoy the great outdoors! We’ve been fortunate to have moderate temperatures and virtually no snow, so take advantage of it while you can. Studies show that simply going for a walk in a park or along a lake or a tree-lined space may reduce the need for medication for anxiety, asthma, depression, high blood pressure, or insomnia. And you can find a whole list of places to go right in our own backyard, so check out our Pottstown Area Outdoors Activity Finder at: pottstownfoundation.org/mission-healthy-living/outdoor-activity-finder#areaoutdoors #pahwf #parks #hiking #walking #biking #running #trails ...
