My four year old has always been very afraid of dying,more since our hamster died a year ago. Today her older sister said something about growing up and my four year old flipped out she is in tears afraid of dying ever she wanted me to pinky promise(because you can't break a pinky promise) that everyone in our whole family will "never ever ever die forever and ever". I would like this issue dealt with now before it is any more major than it is now. I just don't know how to go about it I've tried the everyone grows up and gets older and so on and she then told me she wasn't going to grow up or get any older and neither could anyone else. It might have a lot to do w/no dad around but he didn't die he's just not around. She doesn't not ever want to see anyone again. I just don't know what to do she is so upset and scared but I know it will only get worse if I leave it be. Help someone anyone please!!!!!!!

I think you should consider having your child evaluated by a professional. There is a very real, sometimes dibilitating disorder that causes panic attacks and anxiety to the point that you alter you lifestyle. She obviously isn't that severe but if she does in fact have a panic/anxitey problem the sooner you deal with it the better off she'll be.
