For Parents and Kids
Talking to a child about death is one of the most difficult conversations you could ever have. They have so many questions and you don't have all the answers. You are learning to cope and express your grief at the same time as the children in your life. You learn how to remember a loved one, cope with new feelings and emotions, and share your experiences in a healthy way.
Being Present Makes a Difference
Sometimes we just need space. Space to think. Space to feel. Space to express ourselves. Kids are the same way. They need a safe space to understand what losing a loved one is like. They may not know how to process these new emotions and they are looking for someone to walk them through it. A story like Jurni can create opportunity for children to express themselves and explore their newfound feelings.
- Make them feel safe
- Remind them they are not alone
- Normalize their grieving process
- Talk about shared experiences
The confusion, pain, and shock of tragedy affects us all, no matter how old we are. After losing her mother, Jurni's dad urges her to look up at the starlit night sky, and explains that her mother will always be up in the stars. From that moment on, Jurni is set on a course to reach the stars she sees from below. Her mission: becoming an astronaut to be close to her mother again. The only hurdle in Jurni's way is winning a local NASA science competition that could pave the way for her biggest dream.
Join Jurni as she embarks on a quest that will give her a deeper knowledge of her own ability to survive the pain of personal loss.
