September 15, 2011 Snuggles

I find it interesting that an instinct of even a very young child is to want to die when something bad happens. When snuggles (the baby squirrel) died last night Dan wanted to kill himself. His reasoning was that he wanted to be in heaven with him. I calmly explained that you can't go to heaven if commit suicide. Looking defeated he lowered his head and walked away. Sometimes I don't understand where some of our laws come from, but in just a couple of seconds in an exchange with my son I told him that killing himself wouldn't get him where he wanted to go...maybe I do understand a little bit better after all.
