When i was just a child, what i afraid of was dead person, weither close kins or unknown to me, i turn sleepless nights and the corpse image flash every now and then that frightens me if im alone. This fear i overcome after i witnessed my very own father died. Contrary, my daughter , 7 years old now. I notice shes fond of watching dead person. One time we attend an aunties funeral in funeral home. While busy chatting with my cousins, i havent seen my daughter and my young brother about 20minutes, all of a sudden they comeback, they've done looking one by one of the caskets. As if my hairs rising knowing. Just this week, her playmates big brother died. She insisted to look at the corpse and i allowed and what made me angry is she want to come back now and then just to watch the dead neighboor of ours. What do you think is this attitude of her?Is is seldom or normal at her age?

there's nothing wrong with it if she's fascinated with corpses at least you know she's not afraid..you shouldn't be worried that much

She is probably just curious about it. I don think I would just worry about that just yet. One way to understand something is to observe it. Hopefully she will get this out of her system and it wont continue to be an issue.
