The child was left alone after his mother committed suicide in the back room of their Bowling Green home.

Doctors say a situation like this could cause Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in a child. A child experiencing P.T.S.D. may not show symptoms until weeks, months, or even years later.

Doctors also say flashbacks and nightmares are the most common forms of P.T.S.D. After any traumatizing event, grieving, talking, and processing how the incident occurred are the best ways to recover from a tragedy in a healthy way.
