You did a good thing for your son Shaden by allowing him to "see" the truth and to experience integrity between his perceptions and the reality of the situation.

It's very WEIRD to see someone go through an upsetting event with a smile in their face...right?

So much so that we think..golly...what's WRONG with them? Why aren't they reacting to whats going on around them?

That's very close to what your ww and her friends/family are doing to your son...sort of deliberate crazymaking via skewed reality.

Your son would be sad to lose his mother because she died..not because she died of cancer.
