Grief + Loss

With great joy comes great grief, and it’s healthy to show our littles how to process and handle those big, tough emotions. The grief + loss category exists to provide mothers with a place to find resources regarding this topic. Whether it’s the loss of a child, loss of a parent, or other sad situations, use grief + loss to help navigate tough times.

Fort Worth Moms publishes original, personal stories and advice from local moms, as well as relevant and fun information for those of us in the trenches of parenthood. 

Every article published via Fort Worth Moms — whether someone from our in-house team, a guest writer, or a sponsored writer — uses their words to reflect their own opinions, experiences, and beliefs. No singular article or collection of articles represents the opinions, beliefs, or agenda of Fort Worth Moms.

This is your story, and it’s personal. Some will find it healing to talk about it, and some will never mention it. And that’s okay.
But if you know anyone who has suffered the loss of their mother, or a child, or infertility, be gentle and be compassionate. If they don't want to attend church or Sunday brunch, bring Sunday brunch to them. Remember, some of us can't help the tragedies that have befallen us. We have to cope with deep wounds through no fault of our own, therefore, a hug and an understanding heart is always appreciated.
I am grateful there is a date set aside on our calendars to honor moms for all their hard work and sacrifice. However, I know firsthand that, for some, this day is just a painful reminder of loss.

We Remember You, Too

Teaching Our Kids to Mourn

0
While it's not something particularly pleasant to consider, I firmly believe that we have an obligation as parents to teach our children how to mourn as surely as we teach them to ride a bike.
Everyone's journey is different; he or she might want to test new ways to live and want someone to discuss this with. Genuinely listen to thoughts, hopes, and fears. Be a safe place for the person when he or she wants to dream and live well to the very end.
