I told ds his birthday is comming up & he got sad!! I thought he'd be happy :(
he said he didnt want a birthday because he didnt want to get older. i told him hed still be the same just 9 instead lf 8. he was worried he wouldnt like his toys anymore & I told him he would. then he said he didnt want to get older because hed get older and older till he's old then die. :(

I really didnt know what to say, so I just told him my grandma is rrrreeeaaallllyyyyyy old and she's still alive, then changed the topic.

idk what to tell him next time though...?

Sounds like something else is going on. Did you just lose someone he was close to? Or is he having issues socially and is scared kids won't come? Or will make fun of him for getting toys?
