losing a loved one. They talk about their grief and loss, and how they are

loved one is honest, sincere and heartfelt. These children have

experiencing death. Run time: 40 minutes.
When I saw this review on grief come up on Tomoson I immediately applied as this is a subject that is well-known to me and my heart. Having gone through grieving myself, this film WILL do children good. Every feeling these kids have is spot on. Parents – if you can’t find the right words to say, let this film help. These kids on this film are real with real touching stories. These children show their courageousness despite going through the loss of someone they loved. It’s true, children can teach other children. We see it all the time, don’t we?
No matter if your child is grieving now or perhaps later in life when they find out the true story of their loss, this film can help them get through the hard times and the sad times. There is no time limit on grieving and no one said it had to be done by a certain time…and by no means is a year long enough! My grieving story (or lack of) is different from these kids’ story. Perhaps one day this DVD will come in handy for me to share with my grand kids. Until then, I will finish watching it, then tuck it away for later. Thank you Professor Child – you got it right!!
One of Professor
Child’s educational philosophy is children teaching children.
The films are unscripted and the children’s stories are purely their
own. Professor Child is the creation of three mothers coming together
with a fundamental belief in empowering children. Professor Child
believes that children have a powerful voice that is relatable, healing
and hopeful. Ultimately, we want children to know they are not alone in
what they are experiencing and that much can be learned by simply
listening to another child’s story.
This film is to
be used for educational purposes for children. It is not recommended that you watch the film in one sitting. It’s best to watch one or two

exercises related to each chapter before moving on to the next chapter. Please visit professorchild.com to download a free companion workbook with numerous discussion questions and creative exercises that correspond to the film.
