Hi Renee, it sure can be scary for a child to see his mother going thru something like that. How old is he? Does he understand what asthma is? If he is old enough to read, I suggest you find a website that is specifically made for children so he can understand more of what happens. I think that if he knew more, the less afraid he would be for himself and for you.
