Here are the top ten articles for the Child Loss Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. A Moment of Clarity
As the grief process shamelessly forces you on, you reach a point of desperately needing to find something to do, to take your mind away from the pain, if only for a moment. But at the same time, you donít want to not think of her for fear that you are losing her.

2. Our Grief Forever Remains
In the early days after your child dies, it can be quite clear to the outside world what stage of grief you are in - shock, anger, etc. But as times passes, they see us functioning again, maybe even having a laugh. Do they think we're "over it"? We learn to hide our grief behind a mask.

3. A Foundation in Her Honor
Itís a strange feeling, that of knowing you must physically do something so that you wonít perish in your sadness and yet so emotionally unmotivated you could just sit and do nothing forever.

4. Wailing - A Physical Response to Grief
I never quite knew why women would wail after a death of a loved one. Itís a cultural difference and/or a religious difference, I always thought. But now I understand. It's a physical response to grief.

5. Self-Pity versus Self-Compassion
As a bereaved parent, I must remain diligent in paying attention to my feelings so as not to fall into the trap of self-pity while remembering to care for myself emotionally. We walk a thin line.

6. A Bereaved Parent at Christmastime
The sights and smells and sounds of the holidays are constant interruptions, annoyances and reminders of times past; we wish this holiday stuff would just go away.

7. It Doesn't Get Easier
My daughter died two and a half years ago and it feels like yesterday. I am not better; Iím just getting used to feeling this way.

8. The Holidays are Salt in the Wound
I used to love this time of the year. Now it's like rubbing salt in an open wound.

9. Masking Our Grief
In the early days after your child dies, it can be quite clear to the outside world what stage of grief you are in - shock, anger, etc. But as times passes, they see us functioning again, maybe even having a laugh. Do they think we're "over it"? We learn to hide our grief behind a mask.

10. Back to School After a Sibling Dies
How on earth do I get my living child (children) back to school after their sibling has died? Ideas to help you prepare for getting your loved one(s) back to school after their brother or sister has died.
