Hi fellow athiest
My 10 years old daughter cought me off guard before bed time today, by telling me she was affraid of death, I'm 41 and i just starting to think about this.?!!! So i asked her when did you start thinking about this and she said when i was 8 so 2 years ago... Man i was not prepared for this... She is not affraid of death but of dying which is a bit weird to me, but anyway, i started asking her why and what triggered it she does not really know or does not want to tell. We (my wife and I) started to tell her that she will live a long life and die old and that she need to enjoy life and not be affraid of it, that we don't know what really happen after you die, that nobody really knows but some people think this and that, but i'm not so sure that will be enough, not sure what to tell her, my view of things is that when we die.. that's it nothing else happen so you better enjoy your life :-)
any help will be appreciated.
