by Rabbi Eugene I. Kwalwasser
Young people have no experience with death and mourning. They need guidelines, a sense of direction and a path that will give them comfort even as they express their anger, frustration and suffering. Unfortunately, many parents are at a loss as to how to explain the end process of life to their children. Not all parents can really “speak” to their children during such traumatic times. Beyond the Tears serves as a way for young people to share their feelings in a constructive, self-fulfilling manner.
Using real-life examples, the author shows how others have coped with death. Includes information on Jewish mourning practices, the answer to questions children frequently ask about bereavement and a Memory Book that helps bridge the past to the present and the future.
