  • in what area did he think something was wrong? Like in the home, his body, at school or was it an overall feeling something was wrong? Danger, sickness? Anything? Keep an extra eye on him.

  • My 14 yr old son told me this weekend that his science teacher makes him feel uneasy. He said his teacher keeps trying to get one of the boys to stay after, and it just doesn't feel right to him, and his friends. I told him that he is to just do the work, participate in class, but to NEVER be alone with this man. I plan to call the principal tomorrow. I always had a bad feeling, and now I know why... I hope it's nothing, but I also don't want to let it go, and then something does happen and I could have prevented it.

  • Sure did, I was very restless one night. I couldn't read my paper, I couldn't sit and drink my tea, my stomach was slightly upset. I was going to call my 20 yr old DD to tell her to come home or see what she was up to, but I didn't. This was abt 8 to 8:30 P.M the Police came to our door around 9:30 and told us she had been killed around 8:30 in a car accident. The worst feeling knowing inside that I knew something was wrong with my child and not knowing what, or how to resolve it. Always follow your Motherly instinct, that's why GOD gave it to us!!

  • His aunt has just been diagnosed with cancer, we have tried to explain and be truthful about things, but not sure how much of it he really gets. He sometimes just starts to cry and says that he can't stop crying and doesn't know why, he says he starts to think about me and he cries. i have explained to him that things will be ok. Some of this went on before his aunt got sick, he just seems so sensitive lately.

  • he's probably thinking a lot about his aunt and because he's sad he is thinking "what if it was my mom". :(
