5. Okay to Be Angry

Your child needs to know that itโ€™s okay to feel whatever they are feeling after the death of a loved one. Whether they are confused, sad, or angry, your child needs to understand that these feelings are natural.

Let them know that they can scream and get angry if they are mad that their friend has passed away. However, they should also understand that the anger shouldnโ€™t go too far (like hurting themselves, someone else, or by breaking things), but if they really need to let it out, ask them to share their feelings with you or write them down in a journal.
