  • after the death of our son we had to work hard, very hard to hold it together. We saw a paper in the therapy office once that said 50% of relationships don't survive the death of a child.

  • Yes if the proper avenues are taken to help the parents through the grief. Women are more likely to search for help where men will look to reading or watching material on grief. Never minimize how deep grief can affect anyone. There are many wonderful internet grief groups and community grief groups available to help in this situation. Grief is not forgotten, but it can me understood and managed. God Bless!

  • Nope I am positive because we had a child that got some pills and didn't swallow any because I caught him. He got sick though. I blamed my husband because he didn't put them away he left them out. I still blame him for it!
