About a week ago my dd she is 6 yrs. old and all of a sudden started to tell me she did not want me to die and was crying, I was like I am not going to die (which makes me sad bc we really don't know when our time is our time) I told her mommy is not going anywhere so get that out of your head. She asks we''ll don't we die and I said yes as we get old and if we don't take care of our bodies we can go even earlier it depends...I had to mention to her about her grandparents of course she got even sadder but it is the truth only God knows when our time is up.
I just told her to let's just enjoy life as it is. But now she is telling me that in school she kind of thinks about it and wants to cry but she holds it in...I don't want her to feel this way it makes me sad...where could this had came from.
What would you do?
She is a happy little girl but what can I do to make her get her mind off of this?
Thx ladies for listening.
