I know someone who's baby died today and the parents seem unaffected and the mother is on facebook. She is not just posting that the baby died, she is playing games. I just got a game update she reached a new level.

Maybe she is escaping the pain for a bit. I cannot say what i would do as i have not lost a child.

Everyone grieves differently.

Was the baby sick for a while or was it a surprise?

Sometimes games on facebook update themselves... but that isn't the point.

Sometimes it's easier for someone to not talk about it or discuss it. They need to let it set in?

Or maybe she already knew it was going to happen and has been preparing?

 

If not, that's fucked up and she's a fucked up person and I hope God sends her to hell.

Playing online is probably a great escape. Let her grieve on her own terms.

There are several stages of grief, usually one of the first is denial.

People react differently to every situation.

Instead of judging her for distracting herself, offer her support

Let her handle her baby's death the best way for her.

There is no wrong way to grieve, barring hurting themselves or others.

I don't blame her, a mindless game is a good distraction.
