19 years after her mother's death, Laura Shugart shares her story of loss.. http://www.childrengrieve.org/grief-has-no-age
"Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other" - Walter Elliot. I remember my speech teacher giving me a book and the Elliot quote was on the first page. I have never forgotten it probably because at the age of nine it took me at least three minutes to sound out ...

Blogging from the #NAGCSymposium Donna Gaffney explores the concept of 'compassionate curiosity'. http://ht.ly/Oyt81
The late neurologist Oliver Sacks, best known for his book Awakenings, spent his career exploring the landscape of the human mind. Perhaps the most apt description of his life work, his research, is that of "compassionate curiosity." Sacks wanted to understand the nature of his patients' ...

Today's NAGC Blog: 'Inside Feelings vs. Outside Feelings" by Kris Fulkerson of Heartlinks Grief Center at Family Hospice

Excerpt:
"I believe that this world will only get better when we each take responsibility for ourselves. When we individually decide that not just today, but everyday, what I put out in the world will be good or at least do no harm. When every person chooses kindness, love, and patience, not because it is easy but because it is right. So I don't release my negativity on the world, but I don't hold it in either where it could hurt me. I transform my inside feelings into something that makes this world better, because I choose happiness."

Sometimes, I just want to smack somebody. Yeah, I said it. Kris from Heartlinks, who wears a cape and loves helping people with her whole heart, sometimes just wants to let loose with a right hook on the next person who walks through the door. I realize that for some this may come as a shock.

Melted Crayon Rocks:
This is an activity that was shared in the Activity Forum at the #NAGCSymposium in Portland.

The participant who shared this with the group said that he heated up rocks in a crock pot (on medium). He also said that the colors stay vibrant for years! Great for a memorial garden.

If anyone has done this, please feel free to leave tips or suggestions in the comments!

 Here is a post that I have been meaning to share for AAAAGES, part of the recent “Gifts That Kids Can Make” series of ideas: Crayon Rocks. These make excellent paper weights and are a lovely gift to any family friend of relative. As you can see we have made several. Not only do they …

Introduction
Our Mission

The National Alliance for Grieving Children promotes awareness of the needs of children and teens grieving a death and provides education and resources for anyone who wants to support them... Because all grieving children deserve a chance to heal.

About Us

The National Alliance for Grieving Children provides a network for nationwide communication between hundreds of children's bereavement centers who want to share ideas, information and resources with each other to better support the families they serve in their own communities.

The National Alliance for Grieving Children also provides information on current topics and a schedule of professional workshops across the country.

The National Alliance for Grieving Children is led by an all volunteer Board of Directors that represent programs from all around the country.  Join us by serving on a committee or consider nominating someone for the Board. Meet our Board of Directors.
