Very insightful, with practical ideas for how to support children of all ages in handling emotionally challenging experiences. We used this to help a 15-month-old boy prepare for a small surgery, and the staff said he was the most chill patient they'd ever seen. For example, including medical masks during play time so that they aren't scary, and working up to waking him up from a nap while wearing it. Also, playing "spinning" games so that feeling dizzy from the anesthesia doesn't feel so strange.

Why is it so traumatic, I have just been through the toughest year of my life trying to deal with the death of my Love and my father and there have been many times when I thought that being dead myself would surely be better than trying to deal with the death of two people that were a significant part of my life and all the misery that went with it. What I want to know is, what is the point of grief, why is it so awful to the point that you feel your own life is not worth living, why is the experience so shocking and what do we really gain from it. I know I am not the same person and that everything is different now, I don't view that as a bad thing really but what it took me to get to the other side of this is something I find hard to deal with and I wonder what your thoughts are on grief? Can we ignore it and just get on with our lives because some people seem able to do that, whereas I couldn't carry on, I couldn't even function at all for months and months. Maybe that's a tough journey
