How to Talk to Your Children About Death

How to Talk to Your Children About Death


This past weekend, many of us learned about the sudden and tragic loss of 10-year-old child in our community. While grappling with this news, ourselves, we were also forced to try to understand how to best tell our children. We want to share some resources that may assist you in speaking to your children about death, how to understand their grief process and be aware of the signs that indicate your child might be struggling. If you or your child is having a difficult time coping with a loss, we are here to help.

PAL will now be serving siblings of children with disabilities by matching them with a Big Brother or Sister in a one-on-one mentoring relationship.  If you know a family with children between the ages of 5 and 17 that may benefit, please connect them to the PAL program by contacting 770.677.9390 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Why I am an Overscheduled Parent

Why I am an Overscheduled Parent

Another school year is starting. I’ve spent the last few weeks gathering school supplies, school uniforms and mentally preparing for the shift from the more relaxed summer to the frenzy of the school year. My kids are in elementary school (1st & 4th grade) so it isn’t really the school work that gets crazy ... it's our activities.

Hello My Name is Dan and I am an OVERPARENTER

Hello My Name is Dan and I am an OVERPARENTER

I remember the feelings vividly — my daughter was six years old at the time and she was in a warm, nurturing independent school environment. The student-teacher ratio was small, my wife and I regularly volunteered in the classroom and my daughter had been with many of her classmates for years. One day, I chose to linger in the doorway and watch the class begin their day. The teachers gathered the kids in a circle and began their routines when I saw it – my daughter was tussling with another child and, while I couldn’t make out the words, the expressions on their faces didn’t look happy.
