Helping a child get ‘unstuck’ in wake of parent’s death

Q: My husband was killed nearly a year ago, and my 11-year-old son is still having a difficult time with it. Before the accident, he always was cheerful and social and hardly ever complained.

That causes his tantrum to get worse, actually, and it sometimes takes him 30 minutes or more to calm himself down to where he can get out of the chair. Is there anything we ...
