Thank you so much for addressing my question! I enjoyed your responses! I have been doing some research on anxiety and, I agree with you, i had assumed it was more to do with fears but it can incorporate a broad range of issues. Ages 6-8 are big years for some of these “phases” to become actual anxiety disorders and we are starting him with some OT for sensory processing disorder which I think is helping a bit. I’m glad I’m not alone in the tricky spot of trying to understand what’s going on with my complicated child.
Oh my goodness, Allegra’s appearance on the podcast was adorable! This was a fun one. It really got me thinking about what I remember about being a kid at those different ages, and wondering what it will be like for my boys, now 2 and 4. Thanks ladies!
Oops, left this on the wrong recap. Should have been on episode 61 🙂
