Pop legend Michael Jackson's children are finding it difficult to get out of the trauma following their father's death a year ago.

The King of Pop died June 25 last year after suffering cardiac arrest and Jackson's mother Katherine was named the guardian of his three children - Prince, 13, Paris, 12 and eight-year-old Blanket.

"It has been a daily battle to cope with our huge loss... (The kids) don't have any friends. They don't go to school, they have private lessons at home but that will change in September, when they are due to enroll in private (school)," aceshowbiz.com. quoted Katherine as saying.

"But they have their cousins and aunts and uncles around them constantly, and that's helped them immensely. To them, it's normal, it's the life they have known. They have a certain time to go to bed, then they get up and get dressed for lessons. They practise karate and swim, which they love," she added.
