Is it a good thing to have a protective Trust?

Question Details: I am 76 years old and my husband passed away 2 years ago. I don't have much but I would like to keep what I do have for my 2 sons. Is a protective trust the best way to go? I have a Will that only states that whatever I have left be split between my boys. My house is worth approximately $250,000 which will be left to them as well.
