Anxiety in Children.... Kagen...



Week 3 of counselling for Kagen has come and gone well. Kagen is looking forward to this time with his councilor! To the point that when she was running late yesrterday he was disapointed that she wasnt coming at all.

I am so glad that I went with my gut and got the second opinion! Going over the school councilors head! We are seen a private councilor and her name if Fi.

Fi said yesterday that we are starting to see what makes tick. Kagen has very high anxiety levels for a child his age. Fi is hoping to help him bring those levels down and to help him cope better.

While working with Kagen yesterday Fi was able to see the start of an anxiety out burst from him. I explained that this is what we have been going though with Kagen for the last year or so. Not that I would want to put Kagen in a position of feeling such anxiety on demand it was helpful for Fi to see what is happening.

My heart aches so bad that Kagen is dealing with this level of anxiety! I know how real an anxiety attack can feel and how scared I become! While dealing with my own fears I had always prayed that my children would never feel such panic!

I look into my sons eyes and I see the joy he has! He can be such a spunk and always makes me laugh!

My son is so amazing....
