My 3 year old watched his favorite dog, Daisy, get run over yesterday. Unfortunately, he saw the whole thing from start to finish. During the day he seems fine. He asks about his Daisy. He now says that Daisy is in Heaven with Jesus and this is what we go with. But at night is when he seems to have most of his trouble. He screamed her name in his sleep twice last night then he had a panicky cry. Has anyone ever gone through this before? Will his nightmares eventually subside? What else can I do to ease this transition without his dog?
