My youngest son who is 10 has recently been afraid (break down crying afraid) of me or my husband dying. We have tried to reassure him that we will probably be around for many years, but that if something were to happen that he would have lot's of family that loved him and would take good care of him. I have also told him our beliefs that there is a Heaven and we will always no matter if he can see us or not we will always be taking care of him. He out of the blue just starts crying about this probably 3 to 5 times a week for the past couple of months. Do I just keep reassuring him or should I take him to talk with someone professionally. I don't want to be ignoring something that could be pretty serious. He normally is not a very emotional child so that is way it worries me even more. Thanks Everyone.
