Death of a Parent May Cause Potty Training Regression

Coping with the death of a parent is by far one of the most devastating emotional experiences a child can ever have to face. The age and developmental stage of the child will, in part, determine how they might react to and show the grief. Factors such as the age of the child, the manner in which the loved one passed on, and the relationship between the child and the deceased parent will all play a role in how the child displays and deals with the emotional trauma.

Toddlers, preschoolers, and very young children commonly show major regression in earlier developmental stages such as potty training and even language skills.

A great article about helping kids cope with the loss of a parent is by By Cathy S. Babao-Guballa of the Philippine Daily Inquirer. Click below to read the original and entire article:
