My children lost their Grandfather 5 months ago in a car accident. My 5 year old openly talks to me about she misses her Grandpa and often will mention what she misses most. My 8 year old however seems to keep things bottled up inside. She has a heart of gold and I think she will not talk about it because she doesn't want to upset me. Does anyone has any suggestions? I want her to be able to keep her Grandpa's memory alive as my 5 year old does. I have told her many times that we can talk about how she is feeling but always she says she is ok. Do I leave her be with her thoughts? I can tell when she is hurting by her behavior.
