Does your son understand the concept of his birthday, like a new year? If so, can you make a connection to it, except that the DAY goes faster than the year? What about a favorite TV show? Does he think it occurs on the same DAY or on the next DAY? Try to find things that have a beginning and an end, but still keep going. That is why he is having trouble. In a sense, it is a famous dilemma. It ends, but then never ends. Maybe your son is thinking way too hard about it. Those thoughts are a little early for him if he is having them! Hope this helps.
