feeling helpless

How do you help your child deal with a broken heart.
Especially if they are putting on a brave face and tell you that they are OK.
But you know that they are not.
I hate feeling helpless.

Darling there is not a lot you can do apart from being there for them and saying that if they want to talk you are there for them. Just give them a quick hug for no reason.
Time will heal, but time is another dirty 4 letter word like work iron wash

Just be there if he needs to talk, boys often put on a brave face just to stop their Mums worrying.
He will talk when he is ready but it is hard knowing they are hurting and there is not a thing you can do about it.

Hello Angela
Parents always feel their childrens hurt no matter how old they are - just like the grazed knee, only thing is when they are adults you can't kiss it better. Just be there
