Irish Examiner Interview with Anne Comerford

“You’re trying to protect your children, but they’re also trying to protect you. They don’t want to see their mum upset.”
Sr Helen echoes this, saying “we find with bereavement, children will model how the surviving adult be- haves”.
She cites the case of a young girl whose father had died in his sleep.
Mother and daughter were staying in a relative’s house and Sr Helen told her mother that she needed to move back home, saying “she had lost her dad, she didn’t need to lose her home and she doesn’t need to lose you”.
The tough love paid off. This past Christmas, Sr Helen bumped into the little girl’s mother, who said that it was a lucky day when they went to the Children’s Grief Centre. If they hadn’t met Sr Helen, she said, they would still be staying in her sister’s house, and now her daughter is cop- ing really well.
