In brief: Feelings are normal

Depends on the age of the child.
A child also learns how to deal with the challenges from the parents. It's ok to let your child know that you're worried about him/her. It's not the worry proper, but how you cope with the worry. You might be worried, but still functioning. Finding support groups in your area and individual counseling to help you guide through your situation.
