A comforting, practical and go-to expert toolkit for children dealing with loss and grief

The death of a parent, sibling or friend is one of the most traumatic experiences for a child and it can be hard to know how to talk to them about it. In this honest, comforting and strength-building guide, children will be able to look toward the future with hope.

Written by clinical psychologist, executive coach and founder of childhood bereavement charity Winston’s Wish, Julie Stokes OBE, You Will Be Okay is a toolbox for children navigating grief. Julie shares case studies of children’s stories of loss. She offers comforting and practical advice for coping, remembering and taking time for you. Strong emotions come and go. Intense sadness can flip into anger or happiness – all while trying to be ‘normal’ – so it’s no surprise that navigating these emotions can be tricky. But she shows young readers that there is no right or wrong way to grieve, you just have to find your way. You Will Be Okay teaches children that there are many things they can do to build strength and resilience in order move forward with life.
