This is the adorable moment a five-year-old boy burst into tears when he found out he would have to move out from his mother’s house in the future.
Caitlin Fladager, 23, from Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, shared the footage of her son Jack on Instagram.
The mother-of-two had to hold Jack’s hand after he found out he would have to move out the house once he got to a certain age while watching TV.
Caitlin, who is also mother to Ariana, seven, reassured him that he would not have to move out soon but Jack could not contain his tears at the thought of leaving home.
In the video, Caitlin asks Jack why he is crying as he sips from a juice box with tears in his eyes.
He says ‘because I don’t want to move out’ as he turns to face his mother and she reassures him he won’t have to move out for a long time.
Jack rubs his eyes as he starts crying again and Caitlin gives him her hand, telling him he’ll always be ‘her little boy’.
He says he wants to live with Caitlin forever but eventually takes her hand and stops crying and she tells him she loves him.
Caitlin said on Instagram: ‘Jack and I were watching a show on TV. He asked about why the character doesn’t live at home with his mummy anymore.
‘So I tried to explain to him that people usually move out of their mum’s house when they get older.’
The mental-health advocate’s 329,000 Instagram followers responded to the ‘adorable’ video with their own similar experiences.
One said: ‘My son gets anxiety about this often. He’s four years old. He also gets anxiety over the fact I will get old. It makes me very sad.’
Another wrote: ‘My 6 year old still does this when we talk about him moving out one day! He tells me he’ll never move out or get married or have kids.’
Another added: ‘I cried watching this. My heart. I also have a mommas boy and I don’t think he will want to leave my house.’
Caitlin regularly uses her Instagram platform to address parenting, body image and mental health issues.
She married her high-school sweetheart, Noah, and became pregnant when she was 18.
The mother-of-two speaks candidly about battling depression, smoking marijuana and attempting to take her own life in the past.
