"Children emotionally attach to their family pets in the same way they do to other family members. Therefore, it is important not to overlook the child's natural grief when the animal is no longer part of the family," says Kristine Jensen de Lopez, a professor of developmental psychology at Aalborg University's Center for Human-Animal Psychology. She emphasizes that grief is the same whether it's for a human or an animal, and that some children may struggle with the grieving process, risking the development of social and emotional problems.
