School Stress

 Hi, my friends older sister has recently died, and all the time now I am thinking about death. I am getting really scared and my friend is crying a lot.

Ask Sam

Sam

Hi there, it sounds like things are quite difficult for you and for your friend at the moment.  I understand that death can be scary and confusing, but its okay to have different feelings about death.. 

I think it’s really important to find someone to talk to about how you are feeling, maybe someone at home or school. 

You can also speak to a ChildLine Counsellor about this and maybe ask your friend to do the same. 

You might find it helpful to look at http://www.rd4u.org.uk  which has lots of information around dealing with death.

Take care, Sam
