Just signed up to this site 10 mins ago - my 9 year old son found his dad almost 7 weeks ago. He took his own life (hung himself on the washing line) my son and his 2 younger brothers aged 2 and 6 months were the only ones home at the time - no other adult around. I am remarried and my son is the only biological child I have. This incident happened on his dads weekend with him. He seems to be doing 'ok' still plays his sports and stuff but is extremely fearful at home. He runs from room to room here at home and is scared he may see a ghost of his dad, has anyone experienced anything similar? This is so stressful, not only did he experience tragedy by losing his dad but trauma ontop of it by finding him. I am so angry that my ex could be so selfish to do this. Please comment or offer any suggestions/help. I live in New Zealand.
