            The ‘Crocodile Hunter’s widow is concerned her eight-year-old daughter Bindi has been “too happy” since her dad died in September. 

            Terri, 42, met with a therapist to ask whether Bindi and her two-year-old brother Bob should receive counselling to deal with the tragedy. 

            She revealed: “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.’” 

            Although Bindi has been coping well, Terri admits Bob has found it harder to adjust to life without his father. She added: “He really has had a much more difficult time and I attribute that to the lack of knowledge about death.” 

            Shortly after Steve’s death it was reported that Bindi would be following in her dad’s footsteps and star in a wildlife TV series. 

            Shooting was due to start towards the end of the year, however, the proposed programmes were temporarily shelved by bosses at the Discovery Kids network over fears it would be too soon after Steve had passed away.
