My mother passed away 2 years ago. Before I met my husband, I was a single mother for the first 5 years of my son's life. We lived with my mom for a majority of that time. My son is now 12 and he was 10 when mo mother passed away from a brain hemorrhage. We were living with her at the time & he was very close with her. When she passed, it was very sad & what concerns me is that he never cried. He never shed not one tear & to this day, he never talks about her or expresses any kind of sadness regarding her death. I've asked him about it & talked to him about it & let him know that if he ever wanted to talk to me or any other family member regarding her passing to please let me know. I'm a little concerned that he is bottling this all in & I'm afraid it might have a negative impact in the future if he never really deals with it. Should I be concerned or should I just accept the fact that he got over it & dealt with it without actually showing any kind of emotion? Any advice would be greatly appreciated....
