Terri Irwin takes kids to psychologist
Wednesday Nov 22 00:06 AEDT
Terri Irwin has taken her two children to a psychologist following concerns daughter Bindi has been "so happy" despite the death of her father Steve.

In an interview in The Australian Women's Weekly, Mrs Irwin said she had taken eight-year-old Bindi and her two-year-old brother Bob to a psychologist to assess their emotional state.

"I don't pretend to have all the answers," Mrs Irwin said.

"I met with a psychologist and that's been a tremendous help for me.

"I asked him if everything was OK, because Bindi has been so happy.

"And he said, 'Why? Are you worried? That's what you are shooting for. That's what you want - a well-adjusted child who can handle a tragedy and see that life goes on'."

Irwin died after being struck in the chest by a stingray's barb while filming a documentary on the Great Barrier Reef on September 4.

Mrs Irwin, 42, said Bob had not coped with his father's death as well as Bindi had.

"He really has had a much more difficult time and I attribute that to the lack of knowledge about death," she said.

"He saw a dead turtle the other day and I was trying to explain that it was dead, and he asked if the doctor could fix it. So there is a lot of explaining (to do)."

Mrs Irwin told the magazine she plans to step into the shoes of her Crocodile Hunter husband by taking over crocodile shows at the family's Australia Zoo on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.

She also addresses criticisms surrounding Bindi's meteoric but controversial rise to fame following Irwin's death.

Bindi features on the December cover of the magazine, cuddling a koala.

I hate to say it but that little girl is very self absorbed for her age. I don't think it will click that her father is gone. Not while she's too busy wallowing in her own media attention.

its not neccesarily a bad thing either - everyone is different when it comes to a loss like that

I am okay with how the kids are. Different people have varied ways of responding to tragedy and Death. What worries me is that it is carried on the pages of the newspaper and not kept private where it belongs!
