My dad has cancer and there isn't much they can do for him at this point. He is still receiving chemotherapy, but only until he can no longer stand how sick it makes him. The best guess is that he has a year to live.
My oldest is close to him and I know he will be devastated and worry about him dying until it happens. I don't want him to be crazy with worry, but if something happened before that I want him to be prepared for the possibility, that Papa could and will die soon.
At this point my dad seems very healthy, so it is even surreal to me that he is so sick. I just don't know....my son is a worry wart and I don't want him to worry himself to death about it. He is 11. And had a very difficult time when his great grandpa died, then great grandma less than a year later.
When would you tell your kids?
