Losing a parent at any time in life can be extremely traumatic and painful but for children, it is also both transformative and life-changing. Mother’s Day which this year is on the 14th of March is a good time for us all to remember the most important figure in our development.

What are the impacts?

Research shows that losing a mother early in life can be deeply traumatic but as strange as it seems losing a father can also have a deep psychological impact. There are no words that can fully describe what a father means, and the impact that they have on a person’s life. For some, fathers are heroes who provide and protect. Others look to them as hands to guide. And while it’s hard to measure his influence, it’s even more difficult to articulate what it’s like to lose it. The grief of losing a father can at times seem nearly impossible to recover from. And each June, as families are celebrating their dads, and posting homages to them on social media, Father’s Day can be a painful reminder of what others have had to say goodbye to.

How to Get Close After Losing Someone

Regardless of whether it’s our mom or dad that we have lost we would all just long for one more hug, a kind word of encouragement, or an acknowledgement of how well we are doing. This is where Klokbox becomes invaluable because it’s that intimate special place where we can be alone, reflect on things, to create those memories that have such huge importance to our loved ones when we are no longer with them, it’s a place where we think about those we leave behind and where we create those warm moments that will bring eternal connection and comfort.

Now that it’s close to Mother’s Day maybe it’s a good time to discover Klokbox for yourself and begin that journey for yourself before it’s too late.
