  • That is disturbing. I guess talk to her about it, find out where that comment came from.

  • My guess it she is just exploring the concept of death. Trying to understand it. I wouldn't make a big deal about it but you might ask her what she knows about funerals and if there is anything she's like to know more about.

  • Thank you for your answer. I spoke to my daughter and she said she watched a show that talked about that but did not know what funeral meant.

  • My son, who is six, asks a lot of questions about Heaven, and what happens after you die. We talk about it, and sometimes he says that he can't wait to get to heaven!!!! He sometimes worries about when we're going to die, and who will die first, and all that. He wants to know why, if heaven is up, why do they bury us in the ground... I don't KNOW all the ANswers to these QUESTIONS!!! He wants to know if we'll get wings, like angels, and isn't it crowded in Heaven if everyone goes there when they die....

    Anyway,you're not alone with these thoughts of death and dying. I guess it's natural.

    How long has this "imaginary friend" been around???
