That's when an XACTO knife and some Elmers come in handy.

I've got my buddy's kid. It seems the problem is that with a mom and 4 younger siblings, he simply hasn't had a chance to grieve. He's been letting all that out for the last several hours with no sign of stopping anytime soon. I'm just going to let him keep on going until he falls asleep tonight. Then tomorrow I'm going to try to get him distracted for a bit during the morning and early afternoon helping me with some chores and tasks I've been meaning to get done, then let him go at it some more if he wants. And the next day... and the next day... and the next day...

Hey, is there a safe time limit? I mean, should I try to stop him after a certain length of time, for health and safety reasons, or is it safe for him to just squall until he passes out? Because this isn't some little pansy ass crying with a few tears and the sniffles. This is a bit more. This is some very forceful sobbing and moaning. He hyperventilated a couple of times already, and we've got a paper bag on standby.

Trip, he needs to get it out of his system. it's been building for quite a bit of time. he has masked those feelings of grief with alcohol and now it's coming out. how long it will take, i really don't know. but he's hurting deep inside and he needs to let it out so he can on to the next step after grieving and that's healing. my best advice is to just use your instincts and best judgement and maybe someone else will have some better advice than mine. IMO, this is a good sign that he's letting the grief out and it seems this was needed. grieving is part of accepting the loss and part of being able to move on to healing.

hope this helps. again good luck.

I don't know how I posted this in the photo thread. I'm distracted I guess.

Just let him go at it for as long as he needs to (try not to let him pass out though, that kills a lot of brain cells). Hopefully he'll get most if not all of it out of his system, and be able to start healing from his loss.

Trip, you are doing something this young man needs and that is truly a great thing to be doing. i think him being around you and Trip Jr. will do him a world of good and help him out greatly.

But he's not going to cry himself to death though, right?

Nevermind. He just passed smooth out. He's done for the night. Snoring like he's sawing logs or calling bears.
