Frequently Asked Questions - Siblings

Siblings and parents share information and answer frequently asked questions about SIDS:

What suggestions do you have that helped or would have helped, your child through their grief in school, daycare, nursery, etc.?

We post a Sibling Question to the SIDS List Server Discussion Area and on the SIDS Information Web Site every two weeks. Responses can be emailed to us at sidsnet1-at-sids-network-dot-org, attention, Jay Mihalko or posted to the SIDS List Server Discussion Area, attention, Jay Mihalko. We will then post the responses to this page of the web site. The responses are opinions and no one person is right or wrong. We do not need to include an individual's name or any other identifying factors unless the author requests to be identified in some way or they want their email address attached.
