OK, sorry I need to vent.
My mother in law passed away last week. She was close to all her kids and to my 4 year old. It was a sudden unexpected tragedy in which none of us wish happened. She was an amazing mother, nanny and mother in law.
My son was the last one to spend time with her, and he asked for more time a day or so after it happened. So I printed off a couple of pictures of her and told him to talk to the pictures and she will hear him.
He does it everynight while crying and keeps the picture next to his bed.
I feel helpless, I told him to do it but I dont know what else I can do to help..
I tell him she loves him and hears him and will always look over him, and that mommys here for cuddles and can talk to her with him.. but sometimes he turns his back to me and just wants to cry alone. thats where i feel especially helpless..
any suggestions as to what else i can do to help him cope?
