When Your Child is a Worrier

This weekend I noticed a pattern with my daughter and upcoming events or activities.

She worries.

She becomes obsessed with the details and asks numerous questions in order to figure out the facts prior to her arriving at the event or activity.

While on our way for ice cream she was told by a friend of ours that she could have the money to pay. This caused several questions the entire ride.

How will I get the money? Who will help me pay? I don’t know money, will someone help me? Who will give me the money again? Will I be able to reach the cashier?

And then the kicker….

Mommy I have so much stuff in my brain. 

I so get it.

She’s concerned with whether her lunch is made before bed and whether I will remember to put sunscreen on her the next morning.

She worries if she will get in trouble for telling a joke and if it’s considered a lie.

Mommy I have so much stuff in my brain. 

I am dedicated to helping her through these worries and hope that it’s just because she’s 5 and there is so much to take in.

So much learning happening and so many things to absorb.

Because as much as she worries…

I worry a million times more.

    Same with the Chunk man. I really don’t know what to do about it. Shawn seems to think that the “yelling” method is all that it takes. Sigh….
    It’s bad when the teacher can point it out. I don’t know what to tell you xoxo

    You will do whatever is helpful, because unlike many parents, you and Daddy give her space and listen to her. Not just the words, but you “hear” what she is trying to say. Love ‘ya.
