I was driving earlier this evening with my 3 kids in the back. We were listening to their favorite CD and having a good time when literally all of the sudden my 5yo dd started bawling. Like, beside herself hysterically crying. I turned the music off and said "What happened, babe?" (thinking she somehow hurt herself.) She replied (barely understandable because of the crying) "I just got a picture in my head that I'm going to lose you and never see you again!!" I said "What do you mean? I'm not going anywhere." She said "You're either going to get in a car crash and die or somebody is going to kidnap me, but either way I'll never see you again." I tried reassuring her that everyone was going to be alright and she wouldn't lose me, but she cried hysterically for about 30 minutes and couldn't be consoled. She was/is determined that something terrible is going to happen.
What would you make of this if it was your kid? I'm seriously freaked out by it.
