One out of five children will experience a family member’s death before finishing high school. Grief over such a loss can become a threat to their well being. Children with unresolved grief are twenty times more likely to have behavioral disorders, ten times more likely to engage in substance abuse, nine times more likely to drop out of high school and five times more likely to commit suicide.
