CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - A program is being offered at Driscoll Children's Hospital to help grieving children and their parents. It's called "Lean on Me" and it is designed to help children ages six and up learn to understand that they are not alone.
 
The six-week program will be split into three groups -- children, teens and adults. Child Life Specialist Nora Garcia said the main goal of the program is to give families the tools they need to help them through the grieving process.
 
"We talk to them about their feelings and how that's important to express and to talk about at home as a family," Garcia said. "It's a family journey that they go through together. We give the parents the tools to help their children when they are at home."
 
The program kicks off 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday and runs until Oct. 13. If you would like to register or get more information on the classes, call 361-694-5763.
