My 8 yr old son keeps thinking about when he will die

Eve - posted on 11/18/2012 ( 3 moms have responded )




When he thinks about this he has trouble sleeping, cries and gets really upset & scared. I've tried reassuring him it won't happen for a long time, but it doesn't help.

I've tried to teach him how to think about other things that make him happy, which only works sometimes.

I'm worried about him & I hate to see him suffer. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

When my husband was deployed my own children had these fears. Keep doing what you are doing--it is helping more than you know. You are doing everything you can. Consider calling in help. Start with your doctor, minister, or school counselor. Speaking from experience--a good counselor can help immensely. Blessings and best of luck.
