Death is inevitable. This fact is hard to digest for most people, even the most mature of adults. Expecting kids to understand such trauma shouldn’t be, well expected.
A legend himself, Bryant of Los Angeles Lakers inspired kids from all walks of life and served as a role model for them. These kids might not know him personally but their innocent heart makes them exactly feel that.
Combined with the charismatic personality that he had, it certainly appealed to the youth who looked upto him as their idol. Dare I say, he was the Micheal Jordon of his era.
In unfortunate events, Bryant’s death occured on Sunday in a helicopter crash. He died along with his daughter, another kid who looked upto him as did any of his younger fan.
This can be the case with any celebrity considered dear to a child. Whether it be Kobe, Hagen Mills or any other public figure.
Here, we cite expert based opinion on how one should deal with a child when such a disaster occurs. How parents should empathize with their kids and help them recover from the loss of a celebrity, they considered as family.
