    How to ease the pain of a four year old in the grief process?

    There are few times I feel helpless as a parent. How do I ease my daughter's pain over losing her grandma. I have been trained as a chaplain, but it still breaks my heart to see my baby long for my Mom and not really be able to do anything more than comfort her with words. To be honest I want my Mom, too.

    I am sorry to hear of your loss.  Your daughter is a cutie.

    Maybe to help ease the pain, sit down with your daughter and talk about the good times with grandma, and what they got to do together to laugh, or other fun stuff like bake or what ever they used to do.  Share some of your happy moments too, and that will make both of you still feel close to your mom, as well as bond together as mother/daughter to create more good memories.

    My prayers to you, my sweet friend.

      Thanks, thats what we have been doing. She recently made my heart break a little when she said, I'm wishing a wish that grandma would come home cause I miss her." Makes me feel hopeless.

      Children are precious, aren't they?  She is a blessing for sure.  And even though it's heart wrenching, please don't feel hopeless, because that is actually a mature way of expressing herself at 4 years of age...  I think you're a great mom!
