If you're truly blessed your children don't have a worry in the world. You would also have to live in an underground bunker and be the only person your child has ever come in contact with. Even then I think they'd worry about why you were the only two people on the earth.
Every child worries to some extent. Some worry about the test they have to take in school. Others are concerned that their parents will find out about the test they took at school and the subsequent bad grade they received. There are those that fret that their elderly grandparents will pass soon or that if they go to a parade a clown will approach them. Normal kid stuff.
Then there are the true worriers. Those that are almost catatonic thinking about asteroids hitting the earth. Gripped with fear over nuclear holocaust. Completely freaked out over clowns. How can they let clowns in parades? I mean really.
Mom: "I've got Pop Tarts for breakfast."
James (Age 10): "No thank you."
Mom: "Your turning down Pop Tarts. Are you feeling sick?"
James: "No. I don't feel good about those Pop Tarts. They worry me. What time is my game on Saturday?"
Mom: "Ten thirty. It's a ten minute ride."
James: "We need to leave by nine. I don't want to be late. We could hit traffic or road construction."
Mom: "I think that's a little soon to worry about that now."
James: "It may not matter. There's a giant asteroid hurtling towards earth and the Mayan calendar ends Friday."
Mom: "Any other cheery thoughts this morning?"
James: "I'm concerned about the Zombie Acropolis."
Mom: "I didn't even know they had zombies in the Acropolis."
James: "I meant apocalypse. The CDC is training people now and we haven't even signed up yet."
Mom: "I think that was meant as a joke."
James: "What kind of sick person would joke about zombies, asteroids, or Pop Tarts?
