SHELTON, Conn., Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading psychotherapist Sharon Diaz announced today the launch of " Melodee Roo & The Wantoks Too! Letters for Grieving Children Like You."

Videos and links and engaging 'Roo-Tivities' help a child express their feelings and thoughts. Heart-warming songs help to soothe a broken heart, written by nationally renowned composer and Connecticut resident, David Friedman, who is known for musical contributions to several Disney animated films as well as numerous Broadway shows. These programs are ideal for 6-12 year olds, but can be used by children of all ages. Diaz brings over 39 years of experience to the project and has carefully crafted this program to include the different ways a child can learn and to help families bond together. Her decision to launch " Melodee Roo & The Wantoks Too!" came about after the unexpected death of her nephew who left behind a wife and two small children. According to Ms. Diaz, who is a member of the National Alliance For Grieving Children, "No one talks about children and grief, and when a parent or guardian is exhausted from jam-packed days on top of their own grief, it is hard for them to go to weekly counseling, or spend long hours driving to a grief camp. I wanted to make the life of grieving families a little easier during the worst time of their life."
