About Wear Wellies Day
Unlike adults, who stay with their grief, children often jump in and out of their grief. This journey is described as ‘puddle jumping’. This means that they may initially be upset about their loss but may then appear to be fine for a period of time and then become upset again, and so on. This can be very confusing both for children and the adults who care for them.
Conversations can allow children to express their emotions; be it sadness, anger, joy or fear. By opening up these important conversations about death we can allow children who are grieving to ‘puddle jump’ while understanding their mixed emotions.
This is why; we are encouraging all of our team members and customers to get involved and spread the word about Winston’s Wish and the amazing work that they do.
