I have 2 sons 18 & 22 who are with me at the moment since the death of my Mum last week, they have only had a few tears & it worries me they are bottling too much up to protect me. It was a long goodbye as she was ill for 2 years so not a shock to any of us & I also cared for her during that period as Dad has dementia. I have not cried yet because we are a very close-knit family with just me & my kids here so I am trying to hold it together for them. One is in the middle of his HSC so really bad timing for him as well with stress. Has anyone had experience with adult children & grief as I am out of my depth with this?
