Be proactive with grieving child

in

Question: My husband was killed nearly a year ago, and my 11-year-old son is still having a difficult time with it. Before the accident, he was always cheerful and social and hardly ever complained. That still describes him, most of the time, but every now and again he slips into moods where he is just the opposite.
These episodes occur once every couple of weeks and last for a couple of days, on average. I took him to see a therapist a while back, but I saw no change after three months of weekly sessions, so I took him out. When these moods happen, we talk about how special his dad was and how much he misses him, but I don’t think I’m making any headway. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

One of my business classes taught me that the average person is exposed to more than 3,000 advertisements each day. We view billboards while driving, product placement in our favorite television shows or movies, flashing ads on our websites, ads in newspapers, commercials on television and radio shows, as well as hundreds of other places where advertising might pop up.
As far back as when the VCR came out, people around the world have been enjoying their favorite television shows even if they were unable to sit down and watch them while they were broadcast. VCRs, and more recently digital video recording devices, also allowed individuals to skip commercials.
