It can be very hard being a child or teenager when you lose someone who is dear to you, especially if it’s your parents. At this very young age, dealing with this difficult situation is not easy. And what is more saddening about such a scenario is that kids can not accept or understand right away what is really happening.
Kids at this age are still students. These grieving pupils won’t be able to focus on their studies. And now, it’s the teacher’s responsibility to look after the child’s welfare, after all, the school is considered as a second home.
Teachers can help mournful students to move on and see the world differently, even though they are in grief. That’s why teachers have a big role to fill in becoming second parents is such an unfortunate situation takes place.
