My oldest is having panic attacks over the weather. He has always been a nervous guy but nothing to worry about.
But in the last week he his fear of storms and tornadoes has become debilitating. He knows logically that it will be fine but it will simply not get out of his head. He says "please help me stop worrying about it." Which breaks our hearts.
We have put him on the bus in absolute tears each morning for the past week
Anyway have an appointment on Monday with a specialist and we have been taking steps with some "tricks" we have read about. We have worry time at 7:00 each night and talk all about it.
Up until last week we have been able to simply talk him through any nervousness pretty easily.
His teacher is aware of it as is the school counselor although I don't expect too much from that.
Anyone dealt with something similar?
