This precious book should still be a #1 seller..I had recently lost my Son, Justin....He was only 23 years old...Of coarse I buried myself in bed under the covers and did not care about anyone or anything ..I was given , I believe over a 100 books on how to grieve...I had a Woman come over to my home whom I've never met and gave me another book,,THE BEREAVED PARENT I thanked her ..My Daughter Jessica who's 30 years old came up, laid next to me and said; What about me , I'm still here ? Well that was enough to help some..Later I picked up the book and started to read and could not put it down..If you know a PARENT who has lost a child This is the most precious gift you could offer them..Oh pray they read it.. I pray you will never have the need to buy one.......Joann

After the death of our son, I ordered this book because it was included on the recommended reading list provided by our local hospice. I understand that it was perhaps the first -- or one of the first -- books to address this topic specifically to parents. It IS helpful, but because the book was published in 1974, many of the social references are very outdated which seemed awkward at times. For example, referencing that bereaved fathers were the workers and expected to come home and have dinner prepared, when bereaved mothers may not feel up to always preparing dinner. I could understand what the author meant, but it is a pretty constant thread in the book.

My first copy of this was given to me after the loss of my youngest son. It helped to understand the reactions of his siblings. Without reading this book, their different reactions might've added an additional burden to an aching heart. I bought this copy for someone else that is suffering.

My infant son died in 1984. Since then I have handed out a copy of this book to every bereaved parent who has come into my life. It was a tremendous comfort for me as the author is a bereaved parent and knows of which she speaks. I highly recommend this to anyone who has suffered from the loss of a child.

The best Bereaved Parents book ever! Should be recommended reading for anyone who has lost a child. I am a bereaved parent and found great comfort in this book. It helped me to know that I was not crazy. Recently a friend lost her son and I wanted her to read the book. I already owned the book, but not willing to part with my copy, so purchased it as a gift for a friend. The book was hard to find...Amazon was the place to go!

When my son died in 1988 I was given several books about death and dying but I could never get past the first few pages before losing interest. When I opened this book, after the first few pages I knew that the author had an idea how I was feeling and finished it - it is the only book I have ever read on this subject and I remember that it helped me realize that what I was feeling was "normal", if there is such a feeling after losing a child. Since my son died I have known too many people that have lost children and this is the book I buy for them. If you have lost a child or have a friend or aquaintance that has lost a child I believe that this book will help.

It was about 4 weeks after our daughter died before I got the courage to read this book (which was originally suggested to me by a social worker). Both my wife and I found it extremely helpful, particularly the sections about how we have to grieve separately and not expect support from each other, a critical insight.

My only criticism is the section on bereavement and religion. Although the book talks a lot about people turning to or away from god, it does not really discuss in any detail how those without any beliefs in the first place are supposed to handle such tragedies. In particular (and this might be surprising to some), I found it easier to handle my grief secure in the knowledge that no matter how I might behave in the future, there is absolutely zero hope that we would someday be reunited. Theres also less guilt, looking backwards, thinking "what if" and so forth.

This "radical acceptance" (a concept from DBT) has made it easier to move forward. The grief and sadness are there (and no doubt will always be a part of us) but we are not paralyzed into non-action, isolation or other behaviors that would be (as the author points out) very detrimental going forwards.

No matter what you belief (or not), this book will really help.
A good book for parents to read but also for the friends and relatives of parents who have lost a child.
