My heartfelt condolences. It is a trying time for you and your children. You will have to play mother and father. First allow yourselves to grieve properly. During the next one year they may display irritation, frustration and anger. They may become touchy too. Please allow them to express. Also do not avoid his topic. In fact talking about him will help all of you to connect to your feelings and to each other. Be observant and not any change in children's behaviour. Slowly they will accept. Time will help. Take children out on simple outing , walks. Spend as much time possible with them. You will have to be firm and loving. But behave as a friend too. Keep your communication open with them. Share your concerns with their teachers so that they are taken care of at school too. Have the grandparents come and stay for short periods to help you out. Set a daily routine from e study and play This structure will help. You can enroll them in activities to keep them engaged. All the best. Do reach out if you need further help. Do not hesitate to celebrate a festival or laugh and enjoy the small moments. Life is precious. Don't feel guilty . Take care.
