4Moms: Helping teens cope with grief

August 15, 2013|By Mary MacVean

Grief is part of being human, but coping wtih the death of a loved one when you are a teenager is a tricky prospect. And the difficulties only increase if the loved one is not a grandparent, but a peer. When teenagers die in car accidents or as victims of violence, how do the kids left behind cope? And what can their parents do? What are the warning signs that a teen is not coping?

For this week's 4Moms conversation, we'll talk with Moises Rodriguez, a psychologist from the Adolescent Medicine Division at Children's Hospital in Los Angeles. Please join us at 1 p.m. Pacific time on Thursday. You're welcome to ask your own questions or just listen to our expert in the chat above. You can also tweet us questions at #asklatimes.

If you can't join us live, the conversation will be archived for later viewing.
