Can 5 year olds have anxiety? – Follow up.

I had a few people reach out about my last blog post, so I wanted to follow it up after I spoke to my therapist.

She said a lot of what Biggie is experiencing is normal for his age. She also thought we needed to wait to see how he was after we moved. That if we were feeling the stress he would be too, especially if he is as perceptive as we described. Makes sense to me- of course he would be feeling some of the stress and anticipation of the new house.

She recommended setting up a calendar for him so he can see what’s going on in our family on a day to day. So I made him a calendar, with a soccer ball on soccer days, swim picture on swim days,etc. I also set up a “What’s for dinner?” Sign that I print out with pictures of what we are having for dinner. I notice he looks for it when he gets home. So hopefully these things ease his little mind as we get into this home stretch before we move. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions from everyone this past week 🙂
