Welcome to the Children’s Page

Would you like to know what happens in a Children's group at Lighthouse?

Kids meet with other kids around the same age who also have a mom, dad, sister, or brother who died. There’s time to talk, play games, do arts & crafts, and have free time too. Talking with other kids who are going through the same thing can help us start to make sense of death and grief and all our feelings, and to be with people who really understand.

If you are interested in the online children’s groups, the video below might help to answer some of your questions.

If you would like to learn more about Lighthouse, your parent or guardian can call us at: 905-337-2333 or email us at info@lighthousegriefsupport.org

Sometimes books can help us with understanding death, grief, and exploring all the different feelings we might have after someone has died. Here are some books that might be helpful to you, and help you understand that after someone in your life dies, all your feelings and questions are okay.

Check out our Tip Sheets and other books in our library!
