70. Thank goodness. He's normal!
LOL! If I had a dollar for every 4-6 year old who freaked out their parents by saying something similar I'd be a wealthy woman. I think my son was about 4 and a half when he announced he was going to die when he turned 10. Now that he's 9 and a half he refuses to believe he ever said such a thing.

That's a classic age to explore the meaning of death and gauge adult reactions to the concept. I've found that boys tend to verbalize it more than girls. I wonder why.

Those are shocking statements...from an adult perspective. We've got experiential baggage that influences are perception. The kids definitely don't mean what the adults insert into the exchange.
