    Yes it does. Below please find my summary on the article. Please read and give feedback.

    In the article “Letting Children Share in Grief” by Catherine Saint Louis published in the September 19, 2012 issue of the New York Times, the author speaks points out how it is beneficial for children to be part of the grieving process. She states that children are better off when their grief is acknowledged and they are able to mourn with relatives and peers. With the help of grieving centers and hospice care, which provide bereavement services for relatives, children are finding it easier to understand death. According to Vicky Ott, twenty-five years ago children were considered to be invisible grievers and now children are part of the grieving process. Hospice centers are helping with focusing on the needs of dying patients and bereavement services and they are including the children’s needs during this time. Also, funeral homes are helping children deal with loss by setting up children’s lounges and handing out pamphlets with advice to parents like “confirm that it’s all right to be sad and cry.” Other funeral homes like Broadway Mortuary in Kansas offer tours of the facilities for children, in an effort to make death easier to understand. The article also points out ways to break bad news to children about death such as preparing children on what they will see at a funeral and how parents should avoid confusing euphemisms. When dealing with death, parents should take a child’s age into consideration and let the child ask questions that can lead to a healthy discussion.
