Our 4 year old son came to me last night and was asking a bunch of questions and I answered them the best way I know how. Then when it was bed time he kept saying that he was scared to go to bed. I asked him why and he told me it was because he didn't want to stop breathing. My heart flipped, all I could say to him is that he wasn't going to stop breathing and that he would be ok. Well then he wanted to know why Daddy stopped breathing and why God took Daddy when he wasn't sick. I explained it as that God wanted Daddy to be with him and then he asked me if God didn't want little kids. I told him that God does want little kids but the ones that are really sick or hurting, I, as an adult know that that is not always the case but I didn't know what else to say. It is times like this that I get so angry at my husband for leaving and at God for taking him. I so know that I shouldn't but........ We are such a close family and my husband and I did and I still will life for our children, but when they our asking me things like this it blows my mind! Does any one have any advise on to handle this?
