    28. Child Loss through the Eyes of the Sibling Michele Benyo

    28. Child Loss through the Eyes of the Sibling Michele Benyo

    In this episode, Cara and Rashida have a genuinely amazing chat with Michele Benyo of Good Grief Parenting.

    Michele Benyo is a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, early childhood educator and parent coach, and the founder of Good Grief Parenting. After her 6-year-old son died of cancer, her 3-year-old daughter said, “Mommy, half of me is gone.” This heartbreaking statement defined Michele’s life purpose. Her mission is twofold: to help parents through the unimaginable challenges of parenting while grieving the death of a child, and to equip parents to meet the unique needs of a child who has lost a sibling in the early childhood years. The desire of Michele’s heart is to see families live forward after loss toward a future bright with possibilities and even joy.

    You can learn more about Michele by visiting her site at  www.goodgriefparenting.com or by following her on Instagram and Facebook. You can also join her FB group Parents Raising Young Siblings

Grateful for this podcast

I’ve been listening to this podcast for awhile and love it. Cara and Rashida are so relatable and hilarious. Having recently lost my dad, I plan to go back and listen to older episodes again. Grieving while parenting is rough and these women make me feel less alone in that journey.
