The loss of a beloved family pet is often the first loss that a child faces and it can affect them in profound ways. In addition to the tips that we give parents about talking to their children about grief, it can also be very helpful to alert the child’s teachers and caregivers about the loss. This knowledge can allow them to better assist and companion a child through the grieving process. Feel free to use this letter as a tool to keep them informed or to craft your own, alongside your child.
