The Death of a Child: When Others Rank Your Grief

Reading now: 165

The death of a child is traumatic. When others rank your grief based on how long your child lived they diminish your experience and emotions.

Ranking someone’s grief is wrong. I recently read the article “What the Loss of a Child Does to Parents, Psychologically and Biologically.”Overall it provides good information about the toll the death of a child has on parents mentally and physically.

However, before I made it two sentences into the article I stopped on this statement: “Though it’s not a terribly common experience in the United States – about 10,000 children between the ages of 1 and 14 died in 2018 – the horrific potential for childhood mortality looms large.
